Presentation of Jesus in the Temple


Mary, wishing to obey the Mosaic law, had to go to Jerusalem forty days after the birth of Jesus to offer the prescribed sacrifice.

O almighty and everlasting God, we humbly beseech Thy majesty; that as Thine only begotten Son was this day presented in the temple in the substance of our flesh, so too Thou wouldst grant us to be presented unto Thee with purified souls.
