The Circumcision of Christ, or The Holy Name

The Circumcision, from the middle panel of The Seven Sorrows of Mary, by Albrecht Dürer (1471–1518). From Wikipedia.

Almighty God, who madest thy blessed Son to be circumcised, and obedient to the law for man: Grant us the true circumcision of the Spirit; that, our hearts, and all our members, being mortified from all worldly and carnal lusts, we may in all things obey thy blessed will; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
