Confirming Name Of Jesus On Eighth Day
Today is the Day of Celebration of the Holy Name of Jesus Christ. Our gospel passage begins in Luke Chapter Two.
When the angels had left them, and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.
Angels of the Lord met with these shepherds at a farm, somewhere within the region of Bethlehem. Why did the angels meet with the shepherds? Why not pick out some high society religious folks from the temple in Bethlehem? The shepherds were not a part of the 1%. They were more on the lowest side of the 99%. This is in keeping with the message of this passage. The message is that the birth of Jesus is not intended for a special class of people.
Continuing with our passage we read: When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them. 19But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
After eight days, had passed, it was time to circumcise the child and he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb. Jesus Christ is born and per Jewish custom, which Joseph and Mary kept, on the eighth day he was brought into the temple. He was circumcised and his name was pronounced. His name will be Jesus

St Alban’s Episcopal Church
St. Alban’s Episcopal Church is an active parish in the Episcopal Diocese of New York, in the United States. The building is an historic Carpenter Gothic style church now located at 76 St. Alban’s Place in Eltingville, Staten Island. It was built in 1865 as the Church of the Holy Comforter at what is now 3939 Richmond Avenue, the present site of the South Shore YMCA, and was designed by Richard Michell Upjohn, the son of the noted Carpenter Gothic architect, Richard Upjohn. In 1873, the building was split in half and moved to its present location, where it was re-assembled and expanded. In 1951, Holy Comforter absorbed the congregation of nearby St. Anne’s Episcopal Church, Great Kills, and changed its name to St. Alban’s. St. Anne’s had been founded in 1929 as an offshoot of Holy Comforter.
On October 29, 1982, St. Alban’s was added to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1984, it acquired an 1883-vintage Hook & Hastings organ, believed to be the oldest pipe organ that currently exists in a Staten Island church.
