Holy Name of Jesus

Hope again, O sinner; hope and despair not. Hope in Him whom you fear; fly to Him from Whom you fled; beseech Him with violence Whom you have offended.

Jesus, for Thy Name's sake, do that for me which Thy Name proclaims. Jesus pardon the pride that offended Thee. Look upon the unhappy one that forsakes Thy sweet Name; Name of delight, Name of blessed hope. For what does Thy Name mean Jesus, but Saviour. Therefore, for Thy Name's sake be for me Jesus, be to me, a Merciful Saviour.

St. Augustine, de contritione Cordis V
