Holy Fathers on the Name of God: St. John Chrysostom

For this cause too the angel came bringing His Name from Heaven, hereby again intimating that this is a wondrous birth: it being God Himself who sends the Name from above by the angel to Joseph. For neither was this an empty name, but a Name full of ten thousand blessings.

St.  John Chrysostom, Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew, Homily IV
