November 21, 2015 (Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

The 2nd century Protoevangelium of James tells us that Mary was presented in the Temple at the age of 3, where she lived with other girls and holy women. Mary is the new temple of God as she was going to bear the Son of God. In this, she was submissive to the will of God. It is the custom for many to renew their consecration vows on this day. We honor the holiness of the Virgin Mary and ask her prayers to help bring us to holiness, as well.

  1. In this time of animosity between certain Muslims and Christians we might be well advised to turn to Mary and ask her, who is highly honored by both Muslims and Christians, to bring about an end to all hatred and violence between those who see her as a virgin mother and God’s most holy woman.
