Feast Of The Purification 2018
This ancient feast is celebrated today in the same way as Sylvia described the ceremony in the fourth century.  Our Lord and His Mother exercised humility by submitting to the Mosaic laws that did not apply to these sinless Personages.  The Holy Infant was ransomed this day so that He could be offered for our redemption in the future.  Our Lady did not need any purification in order to return to the temple but she identified herself with us sinners.  The first procession took place on this day with Simeon and Anna joining the Holy Family.
