“The Lord called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name” (Is 49:1).

“From my mother’s womb you called me” (Responsorial Psalm)

“Today we can make our own these words of the Psalmist. God knew and loved us even before our eyes could contemplate the marvels of creation. At birth all men and women receive a human name. But even before that, each one has a divine name: the name by which God the Father knows and loves them from eternity and for eternity. This is true for everyone, with the exception of none. No one is nameless in God’s sight! All have equal value in his eyes: all are different, yet all are equal, and all are called to be sons and daughters in the Son.”

From a Homily given by Pope John Paul II, Chayka Airport, Kiev – Sunday, June 24, 2001
