Happy Holy Name or Circumcision of Christ

January 1 is the feast of the Holy Name. This Feast Day commemorates the circumcision of Christ. Holy Name reinforces two vital truths. One, Jesus really is a man. He really was circumcised. Docetic phantoms do not get circumcised. Two, Jesus really is Jewish. There is no way to understand Jesus nor the catholic faith without deeply grasping that he really is a man and that he really is a Jew.
