Hello Everybody,

What an absolute beautiful day today is. Today we celebrate the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin. The tender precious soul of Mary has always been so adorned. It is a tradition that Mary was offered to God in the temple in her infancy. I am sure Mary's first presentation to God was an absolute joy in His sight.

At the age of three Mary was brought to the temple by her parents, Joachim and Anna. We need to look more closely at Mary's life and do the best we can to our ability to live our life like hers, a holy life.

Her Presentation Blessed Us

A holy life she would always live
For God has a plan for her and the Lord,
She was born to deliver her only Son
And pierced her heart with a sword.

Her love for Him would go without say
Everything revolved around Him,
She nurtured Him and healed His wounds
And gave Him to us to forgive our sin.

She was presented as He was to
A holy life she lived in His sight,
Obedient to God and the Holy Spirit
For she knew to say yes was right.

The Blessed Virgin there is no other
She lived a life obediently devout,
Without question she fulfilled His will
For he'd save the world no doubt.

"She was planted in the House of God, nourished by the Holy Spirit and kept her body and soul spotless to receive God in her bosom. He who is all holy rests among the holy." St John Damascene
