To exchange names is an important stage in every ongoing relationship. When God reveals his name to Moses it changes the relationship between God and his people and puts them in a unique place in his plan of salvation. For us, to make the Sign of the Cross – ‘in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’ – it expresses the nature of our relationship with God, the blessed Trinity.
