SAGINAW — During his First Friday homily message today, on the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, Bishop Robert Gruss talked about the power of the holy name of Jesus with the nearly 400 people gathered for Mass at the Cathedral.
“In the name of Jesus, the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk and the dead come to life,” Bishop Gruss said. “This wonderful feast allows us the opportunity to rejoice, recall and reflect on Jesus, the Son of God, who not only works miracles in the lives of people, but saves us from our sins. He brings light into the darkness of our lives … and opens heaven to each and every one of us.”
