The feast of the Holy Name of Mary follows her birthday as the feast of the Holy Name of Jesus follows Christmas. The feast originated in Spain and was approved by the Holy See in 1513. The Hebrew name of Mary (in Latin Domina) means lady or sovereign; this Mary is in virtue of her Son's sovereign authority as Lord of the World. We call Mary our Lady as we call Jesus our Lord, and when we pronounce her name we affirm her power, implore her aid and place ourselves under her protection.
