Have you endured the loss of miscarriage? Please consider naming your unborn child just as the angel Gabriel told St. Joseph what to name the unborn child so God will lead you as you call on St. Joseph for intercession as well as the baby’s own guardian angel.
“The angel then makes explicit Joseph’s role to give the child the personal name that indicates his identity: “you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Together with Mary at the circumcision, Joseph fulfills this command of the angel. In doing so he declares his legal fatherhood over Jesus, and proclaims the child’s mission as Savior. Without hesitation he accepts his responsibility as father, trusts in God’s love, and puts his faith in the salvation the child has come to bring.
St. Joseph was the one chosen by God to name His own Son, and since he was told the specific name to give while the child was still in the womb, he is a most fitting model and patron for this important, but difficult step. He may be prayerfully invoked for assistance in choosing and giving the name.”
