THE PRESENTATION OF OUR LORD

The Feast of the Presentation

Forty days ago, we celebrated the coming into the world of the One who is the ‘light of all people’, the light which darkness could not overpower.  As his parents brought the Child Jesus into the Temple, so, this weekend, we gather in this holy building – in the presence of the same God, to present our babies and children to the Lord that he might bless and protect them.

Let us pray:

Lord, you welcomed little children.  It is with confidence that we entrust our babies and children to you so that you may bless and protect them. Enfold them in your love. Dwell in their hearts and minds.  Send holy angels to keep them safe from all harm.  Amen.
