Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus - click for link

Acts 3:1-16,
Now Peter and John went into the temple, at the ninth hour of prayer. And a certain man who was lame from his mother's womb was carried; whom they laid every day at the gate of the temple, which is called Beautiful, that he might ask alms of them that went into the temple. He, when he had seen Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked to receive an alms. But Peter with John, fastening his eyes upon him, said: silver and gold I have none: but what I have, I give thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, arise, and walk. And taking him by the right hand, he lifted him up, and forthwith his feet and soles received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked and went in with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

And it came to pass on the morrow, that their princes, and ancients, and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem; And Annas the high priest, and Caiphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest. And setting them in the midst, they asked: By what power, or by what name have you done this? Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said to them: You princes of the people and ancients, hear: If we this day are examined concerning the good deed done to the infirm man, by what means he hath been made whole, be it known to you all, and to all people of Israel that by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God hath raised from the dead, even by him this man standeth here before you whole. This is the stone which was rejected by you the builders: which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no o t h e r n a m e u n d e r heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved.
