The Presentation of The Blessed Virgin Mary in The Temple



It's a shame that this Tradition is kind of forgotten about in the Roman Catholic Church. In the Eastern Orthodox Churches (and therefore the Byzantine Catholic Churches), this Feastday of the Theotokos is celebrated (at least in my Church) with a procession, with the young girls of the Parish carrying lamps in hand, walking up (or down) stairs. It's not strictly liturgical, but in the same way that Easter Eggs are made for Pascha.

May God forgive me for my consistent sins of the flesh and any blasphemous and carnal desire, as well as forgive me whenever I act prideful, against the desire of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to be a Temple of the Holy Spirit.
