Prayer of the Day
Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Candlemas DayFebruary 2nd, 2016
" The child's father and mother stand there wondering about the things being said about Him." Luke 2 : 33
In accordance with the Mosaic Law, Mary and Joseph take their first born to the Temple. The words of Simon and the praises of Anna give Mary and Joseph food for thought, not just on their way home but for the rest of their lives. They shared with Him lovingly and carefully all they had.
Mary and Joseph help us to love Jesus as you did. Show us the way. Bless our families and bless our children. Help us to live out our lives as you did while on earth, being every close to one another. Amen
