Feb. 2, 2017 (Feast of the Presentation of the Lord)

Historically called “Candlemass Day,” we celebrate the presentation of the Lord in the temple 40 days after His birth. We also bless candles to be used this year remembering that Christ is the “Light of the World.” In the Greek Rite it is often called “The Feast of the Meeting,” i.e. with Anna and Simeon.
