Multiple Feast Days to Start the New Year

Our Lord's circumcision and His Holy Name.

December 29, 2023  0

January 1 is the Feast of Mary, Mother of God. It is a holy day of obligation — though some bishops' conferences might rescind the obligation when it falls on a Monday. It's also the day when Catholics remember Our Lord's circumcision. Baby Jesus would have been circumcised about a week after His birth. Meanwhile, the Holy Name of Jesus is celebrated at Mass either on Jan. 2 or Jan. 3 — depending on whether it's the Traditional Latin Mass or the Novus Ordo. In this episode of The Download, hosts Bradley Eli, Rodney Pelletier and Kyle Kopy discuss Our Lord's circumcision, Mariology, martyrdom and various other topics.
