* This feast was not listed on the original proposal for the September Sanctorale, but given that it commemorates an historical event (no less quite relevant to the present day), we have added it back as a Double Major feast, the lowest rank accorded to Marian feasts. In the pre-1911 Office, as noted in an 1854 Breviary we have on hand, the Holy Name of Mary was kept on the Sunday within the Octave of her Nativity. In keeping with the "spirit of 1570" and of the sensible Pian reform to remove fixed feasts from Sundays, the CTO adopts the post-Pian fixed date of 12 September.
