In honor of Jesus’ Most Holy Name here are two prayers in English along with their respective Latin versions:

O Good Jesus (O Bone Iesu)

O Good Jesus,

According to Thy great mercy, have mercy on me.

O most merciful Jesus,

by that Precious Blood which Thou didst will to shed for sinners,

I beseech Thee to wash away all mine iniquities and to look graciously upon me, a poor and unworthy sinner,

As I call upon Thy Holy Name.


O Jesus,

do Thou save me for Thy Holy Name’s sake.


– – Latin Version Of Above Prayer – –

O Bone Iesu,

secúndum magnam misericórdiam tuam miserére mei.

O clementíssime Iesu,

te déprecor per illum Sánquinem pretiósum,

quem pro peccatóribus effúndere voluísti, ut ábluas omnes iniquitátes meas et in me respícias míseru et indígnum invocántem tuum Sanctum Nomen.



propter Nomen Sanctum tuum salve me.


O God… (Deus…)

O God,

who didst appoint Thine only-begotten Son to be the Saviour of mankind and didst command His Name to be called Jesus;

mercifully grant that we may enjoy the vision of Him in heaven,
whose Holy Name we venerate on earth.

Through the same Christ our Lord.


– – Latin Version Of Above Prayer – –


qui unigénitum Fílium tuum constituísti humáni géneris Salvatórem et Iesum vocári iussísti:

concéde propítius, ut, cuius Sanctum Nomen venerámur in terris, eius quoque adspéctu perfruámur in cælis.

Per eúmdem Christum Dóminum nostrum.
