“His mother treasured all these things in her heart.” (Lk 2:51)
The presentation of the Lord enlightens us to live in holiness, detachment from worldly things, and purity of thoughts and actions. The child Jesus enters the temple, takes possession of it and will live in the Eucharist until the end of time. Once we have known our vocation, we must follow it and live it faithfully until we are called to heaven.
Reflection and Resolution
Prayer–O God, You sent the Holy Spirit upon the apostles as they were united in prayer with Mary, the Mother of Jesus. May the Queen of Apostles, the same Mother of us all, help us to serve Your majesty faithfully, and to spread the glory of Your name by word and example. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be)
Our Father who art in heaven hallowed by thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Leads us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen
Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed is thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of the womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen
Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. Amen
Queen of Apostles, pray for us.
