The Presentation Of the Lord-Candlemas

Posted on February 03, 2021 in: News

The Presentation Of the Lord-Candlemas

On Tuesday, February 2nd at 7PM, Fr. Michael Bovino celebrated the Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas) in a special way. In the old Catholic calendar, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord was the official end to the Christmas Season. It was traditional to have a blessing of candles at the beginning of Mass because of the words given to Simeon by the Holy Spirit when Jesus was presented to him: “…a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel.” There was special music that accompanied this beautiful liturgy.
