310. You will hear part of this entry proclaimed every year during the Mass readings on Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday readings exalt the holy Name. This reading was also proclaimed just recently at the Sunday Mass on October 1, it happens to be one of my favorites.
Letter to the Philippians 2: 5-11 Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though He was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, He emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted Him and bestowed upon Him the Name that is above every name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.
I just want to add some commentary to this passage. Paul tells us that we should glorify the Name of Jesus. Paul recommends all creation should genuflect at the sound of His Holy Name. While many may find it difficult to carry out this recommendation, there is another subtle and pious way to honor the holy Name of Jesus. You may have noticed some holy ones or priests or whomever do this or you may already do this yourself, but it is the slight bow of the head or nod of the head when you speak or hear the Name of Jesus. It is a beautiful way to show glory to the holy Name.
