“When the days were completed for their purification according to the law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord.” (LK 2: 22)
God unconditionally loves us, and whatever we received, we received from Him. When we are grateful, when we surrender everything to Him, we express our love to Him. Like Mary and Joseph, we can “present to the Lord” our children (especially when they have their own problems with faith), our families and friends, jobs and finances, and all our activities. We want to be close to the Lord and be with Him, connected and united in all our lives.
“In the past, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, he has spoken to us through the Son.” (Gospel Acclamation)
