Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

Mal 3:1-4; Ps 84; Heb 2:14-18; Lk 2:22-40

Bishop Terry Dance

At a time when nothing seems right, Malachi brings a message of redemption and hope, of God’s presence in the world bringing about a sequence of events that would bring reconciliation to all of humankind. The presentation of Jesus in the temple reveals the beginning of God’s plan for salvation coming among us.

Anthem: O Lux Beatissima (H.Helvey)

O light most blessed, Fill the inmost heart do all thy faithful.
Without Your grace, there is nothing in us that is not harmful.
