Reflection from the Pastor:
February 2nd brings us to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, formerly
known as the Purification of Mary. This feast day commemorates how, forty
days after Our Lord’s birth, His parents brought Him to the Temple in
Jerusalem in order to fulfill the Old Testament Law. This beautiful custom
recalled God’s command that the firstborn son belongs to Him (Exodus 13:2).
The texts for the Mass recall the prophecy from Malachi, who described the
coming of the Lord into His Temple and the coming of his “messenger of the
covenant”. Our God-made-man, Jesus Christ, has united himself to us
through the Incarnation: God comes to us, and shares with us his love and

Meditación del Párroco:
El 2 de febrero nos trae a la fiesta de la Presentación del Señor, antes conocida como la Purificación de
María. Esta festividad conmemora cómo, cuarenta días después del nacimiento de Nuestro Señor, sus padres
le llevaron al templo de Jerusalén con el fin de cumplir con la ley del Antiguo Testamento. Esta hermosa
costumbre recuerda el mandato de Dios de que el hijo primogénito pertenece a Él (Éxodo 13: 2). Los textos
de la Misa recuerdan la profecía de Malaquías, quien describió la venida del Señor en su templo y la llegada
de su "mensajero de la Alianza". Nuestro Dios hecho hombre, Jesucristo, se ha unido a nosotros a través de
la Encarnación: Dios viene a nosotros, y comparte con nosotros su amor y la paz.
