holy name of maryThe name of Mary is regarded as holy because it is the name of the Mother of God, she who brought the Saviour into the world.  The feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary was added to the Universal Calendar in 1684 by Blessed Innocent XI, commemorating the defeat of the Turks at the gates of Vienna the previous year: a powerful example of the might of the Blessed Virgin’s intercession. – CTS New Daily Roman Missal 2012, p 2978
