Most Holy Name of Mary
The Most Holy Name of Mary is celebrated by the liturgy of the Catholic Church on September 12 of each year.
The devotion to the most holy name of Mary has its origins in the period that corresponds to about the middle of the XII century.
As an official feast, it was inserted by Pope Julius II in 1513, which however limited it only to the diocese of Cuenca in Spain, first celebrated on September 15, then moved by Pope Sixtus V to the 17th of the same month in 1587.
Later, the celebration of this holiday was expanded, first by Pope Gregory XV to the archdiocese of Toledo in 1622, then by Pope Clement X to all of Spain in 1671.
The extension of the feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary to the whole Church was ordered by Pope Innocent XI Odescalchi, who by decree of 5 February 1685 also changed its date, moving it to 12 September.
