The apostle Peter not only heals, in the name of Jesus, the man crippled from birth, but he confirms to the people that it is by no power or piety of his own, but by the power of the name of Jesus that the healing takes place. And Jesus himself in today's Gospel tells the disciples on the road to Emmaus that it is in his name, the crucified and risen Christ, that repentance for the forgiveness of sins is to be preached. The Church responds: "O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!"
