feast of the Presentation
of Mary in the Temple
The feast of the Presentation of Mary is not based on a
Biblical event, but rather an incident mentioned in the Infancy
Narrative of James.
After Mary was born to Joachim and Anne, her parents dedicated her to
the service of the Temple. And when she was 3 years old, she walked
unaided up fifteen steps to where Zachary, the High priest, awaited her.
When Mary was presented to the High Priest, he took her into the
sanctuary, which was called the "Holy of Holies", where he was allowed
once a year. Mary studied and served in the temple until the age of 14.
Prayer for the Presentation of Mary
Heavenly Father, the Blessed
Virgin Mary was dedicated to You by her parents when she was three. In
the temple, she joined the girls who spent their days praying, reading
Scripture, and serving the temple priests. Her holiness was very
evident, and the high priest thought that You probably had great plans
for her. I ask Mary to pray for the plans You have for my life. Where I
have strayed onto a road of my own choosing, give me her hand to guide
me back to where You want me. Where I need to wait for a new plan to
begin, give me the grace remain patient and say, "Your will be done."
Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for me.
