Homiletic and Pastoral Review is a monthly journal on all things Catholic. Generally, I would say it is one of the more prestiguous on the conservative side of things, along with First Things. To get an article published here is no small thing.

Low and behold, my surprise at this month's issue (October 2008), beginning on page 44: "On the rebirth of holy names" by Rev. Mr. David J. Endres; seminarian for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati!

Congrats David, and be assured of our continued prayers for you as you approach your ordination this May!
UPDATE: HPR is found here, doesn't look like all the articles from the current issue are available online.

Is the article available online?

Deacon Endres' article is excellent. He writes a very timely and accessible essay on the importance and significance of Christian names. I read it yesterday and it helped organize my thoughts for a presentation on the sacrament of Confirmation last night as well (as "Confirmation names" are often misunderstood or casually handled).

Since my daughter is a confirmand this year, I'd love to take a look at the article.
