Reflection Corner: Feast of the Presentation of Jesus (February 2nd)
In this feast day, we celebrate and remember that 40 days after the birth of a Jewish boy, it was the custom to take him to the temple to be presented to God. Mary and Joseph observed this law and presented Jesus to the temple in Jerusalem. On this day, we also bless candles that remind us the light of Jesus’ coming to us. Candles invite us that as Christians we must bring the light of Christ to the darkness of the little corner of our world and to all people we meet.
Lord, help us keep your love, your light burning brightly in our lives. Give us the wisdom and the strength to avoid the shadows of sin in our lives. Help us carry your light to all we meet until that day when we go out to meet you.
