The Circumcision of Christ, Peter Paul Rubens, 1605

Translation of the Epistle of Titus

Dearly beloved: The grace of God our Savior hath appeared to all men, instructing us, that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly and justly and godly in this world, looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ: Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse to Himself a people acceptable, a pursuer of good works. These things speak and exhort: in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Translation of the Holy Gospel According to St. Luke

At that time after eight days were accomplished, that the Child should be circumcised, His name was called Jesus, which was called by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

The Saving Words of the Gospel

In the Name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, Amen.

His Name is to be called Jesus.
