When the days for their purification were completed according to the Law of Moses, they brought the Child up to Jerusalem to pre-sent Him to the Lord.  – Lk 2:22

Reflection. Mary lifted up the Child Jesus when she presented Him at the Temple.  On this feast of the Presentation we offer ourselves along with Him to the glory of the Father.

Prayer. O Lord, help me to always remember that my faith is not simply a set of agreed upon beliefs.  It is a truth that cuts to the marrow of my bones, a truth that must be lived every moment of my life.  I offer myself to You body and soul.
