Most Holy Name of Mary: "et nomen Virginis Mariae"
"Hail, full of grace" -- Luke 1, 26-38
"God sent forth his Son", but to prepare for him, he wanted the free cooperation of a creature. For this God chose for the mother of his son "a daughter of Israel ... and the virgin's name was Mary." -- CCC 488
MCITL 10th Anniversary: The Catechism and Scriptures together in the Sunday homily
