To present Him to the Lord

February 2, 2015 9:04 am

“When the days were completed for their purification according to the law of Moses, Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, just as it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord, and to offer the sacrifice of a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons, in accordance with the dictate in the law of the Lord.” (Lk 2: 22-24)

The Holy Family has been respecting the law, and “according to the law of Moses,” when “the days were completed for their purification,” “Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, just as it is written in the law of the Lord, ‘Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord.’” Thanks to this, Our Lord was recognized by Simeon and the prophetess Anna, and His appearance brought consolation to them. Our Lord was not only recognized but also proclaimed as the Messiah of the Lord, and the Holy Family was blessed by Simeon. So many benefits from … respecting the law.

“A light of revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
