Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On November 21, we celebrate the memorial of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, observed by the universal Church since the 16th century. This day celebrates a moment, like her birth, we don’t know much about historically. The important thing to remember about this feast is the theme that Mary is the new Temple, in whom God has come to dwell in the person of Jesus Christ.

Say this prayer today in the morning or evening: “Eternal Father, / we honor the glory of the Virgin Mary. / May her prayers bring us / the fullness of your life and love. Amen.”
