Memorial of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
A prayer for this feast day:
Almighty and ever living God,
Today we honor the memory of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whose hidden life brings light and warmth to the Church in every place. Her presentation in the temple at Jerusalem reveals her as a temple where God truly lives among us. May Mary’s example give us the strength to radiate that light and warmth to the Church, and help us to be dwelling places of God’s joyful presence on earth.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
