  • The Feast of The Presentation of the Lord

    Soon (2nd February) we will celebrate the feast of The Presentation of the Lord (40 days after Christmas). Jewish religious rituals required that 40 days after the birth of a baby boy, he should be brought to the Temple to be presented to God. While the Holy Family was in the Temple, two elderly people, Simeon and Anna, saw the infant Jesus and proclaimed to everyone that he was God's promised Messiah. Because of Simeon's assertion of Jesus becoming the light of the world, it became the custom for people to bring their 'lights' (candles) to church at Candlemas in order for them to be blessed.
