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
