The Presentation

Today, February 2nd, is the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, the Feast that inspires the 4th Joyful Mystery for the rosary.  In honor of our Lord’s Presentation in the temple, the Church blesses candles that Catholic’s keep in their homes for use in prayer, for when the priest visits to administer the Sacrament of Anointing, or when Holy Communion is brought.  Although, it is not a Holy Day of Obligation it is a good day to get to Mass, if possible!  The “light of Christ” coming to the Temple is recalled in the liturgy.
