Today we commemorate the story from Luke 2 when Jesus’ presentation in the Temp in accordance with Jewish law. In this same story, Simeon prophesied the redemption of the world through Jesus.

Prayer of the Day
Almighty and ever-living God, your only-begotten Son was presented this day in the temple. May we be presented to you with clean and pure hearts by the same Jesus Christ, our great high priest, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
