Feast of the
Presentation of the
When the most pure Mother and Ever-Virgin Mary's forty days of
purification had been fulfilled, she took her first-born Son to
Jerusalem on this, the fortieth day after His birth, that she might
present Him in the temple according to the Law of Moses.
22 And after the days of
her purification, according to the law of Moses, were accomplished, they
carried him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord: 23 As it is
written in the law of the Lord: Every male opening the womb shall be
called holy to the Lord: 24 And to offer a sacrifice, according as it is
written in the law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves, or two young
pigeons: 25 And behold there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon, and
this man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel; and
the Holy Ghost was in him.
Prayer for the Feast of
the Presentation of the Lord
Heavenly Father, on this
Feast of Candlemas (the Presentation of Christ), I recall the gift Mary
and Joseph gave to the world by offering baby Jesus to You in the
temple. I offer up to You all the children in my family. I place them
into Your perfect will and I turn their futures over to You. Help me to
let go of my ideas of what they should do with their lives, and show me
how to guide them into the purposes for which You created them. Help me
to learn from the example of the Blessed Mother, whose heart was pierced
by the sword of her Son's pain, how to always trust in Your plans. Holy
Family, pray for us.
