The Holy Name - Poem by Bernard Kennedy

(written on the Feast of The Holy Name)

God asked man to name each,
one by one-
in naming, nom de pere, et fils,
what is your name?
another way of asking
'where do you come from? '.

Its different from nick name,

but in the burning bush
the name came,
eternal, ongoing,
IHS- and his name shall be,

The naming, intimate,
the inner self determined
and calling the name.
An introduction.
