    Posted on February 1, 2020 by Msgr. Charles Pope Perspectives on the Presentation—A Homily for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord The liturgical focus of the Feast of the Presentation, which we celebrate today, is light. Christ is our light, and the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light! In the Gospel, Simeon holds the infant Jesus and calls Him “a light for revelation to the Gentiles.” Thus, this feast has long featured the carrying of candles by the faithful in procession and the blessing of candles. For this reason, the feast was often...
  • "The Purification of Mary, the Presentation of Our Lord, and the Consolation of God's People" (Sermon on Luke 2:22-40)

    “The Purification of Mary, the Presentation of Our Lord, and the Consolation of God’s People” (Luke 2:22-40) For most Americans, today is being called either “Groundhog Day” or “Super Bowl Sunday.” But for us in the church, we observe this day, February 2, for two events that are much more significant, namely, “The Purification of Mary and the Presentation of Our Lord.” And that in turn will lead us to celebrate something that results from this day, and that is, the consolation of God’s people. Thus our theme this morning: “The Purification of Mary, the Presentation of Our Lord, and...
  • What interactives can do (that articles can’t)

    05/15/2019 5:06:23 AM PDT · by vannrox · 1 replies ^ | 3-06-2019 | Elliot Bentley
    What interactives can do (that articles can’t) It’s a tough time for interactives. Last year saw debates around whether the format is dead (or not) and it’s difficult not to notice an industry-wide trend away from interactive graphics using live code and towards static images and ai2html. There are many good reasons for this: better understanding of reader behaviour, a move away from confusing unstructured and nonlinear structures to linear ones, design limitations imposed by mobile devices, third-party platforms for redistributing articles — such as Google AMP or Facebook Instant Articles — that don’t support custom scripting and complex content,...

    The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer ^ | October 25, 2017 | Alva James-Johnson
    Imagine a major interstate running through Columbus, spurring economic development, prosperity and connecting military installations along the way. That’s the scenario that 19-year-old Frank Lumpkin IV presented to Columbus Council Tuesday, while making a pitch for Columbus to be connected to a major interstate that will run from Meridian, Texas, to Augusta. Lumpkin, a 2017 Columbus High School graduate now enrolled at the University of Georgia, said I-14 Texas already has been designated by Congress and is currently being built in segments. The first 25-mile stretch officially opened on January 26, 2017 near Killeen, Texas and Fort Hood. If built...
  • [Catholic Caucus] The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Gueranger)

    11/20/2017 8:59:43 PM PST · by CMRosary · 4 replies
    White Greater Double THE PRESENTATION is one of the minor solemnities of our Lady, and was inscribed at a comparatively late date on the sacred Cycle; it seems to court the homage of our silent contemplation. The world, unknown to itself, is ruled by the secret prayers of the just; and the Queen of saints, in her hidden mysteries, wrought far more powerfully than the so-called great men, whose noisy achievements fill the annals of the human race. The East had been celebrating for seven centuries at least the entrance of the Mother of God into the temple of...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 2/1/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    The Liturgical instinct of the Feast of the Presentation which we Celebrate today is “Light.” For Christ is our light and the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light! In the Gospel Simeon holds Jesus and calls him “A light for revelation to the Gentiles.” And thus, this feast has long featured the carrying of candles by the faithful in procession, and the blessing of candles. For this reason the feast was often called “Candlemas.”Biblically the feast celebrates the “purification” of our Lady when, as a Jewish woman, she would present herself forty days after giving birth...
  • The Churching of Women and it Relation to the Feast of the Presentation

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 1/30/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    As we prepare for the Feast of the Presentation (Sunday, February 2), I though it might be appropriate to describe a liturgy of the Church that is largely lost to most today, “The Churching of Women.” To some extent it is subsumed in the modern Rite of Baptism with the blessing of the Mother, but it is not what it used to be. We CAN still celebrate this for women who ask, and I often do celebrate it especially when I do extraordinary form Baptisms.The Churching of Women is very rooted int he feast of the Presentation. Biblically this feast...

    Featured Term (selected at random):ANNA This woman was a prophetess who spent all her time, day and night, in the Temple. She was present when Jesus was brought to the Temple by his parents in accordance with the Law of Moses. She "began to praise God" on seeing him, "and she spoke of the child to all who looked forward to the deli-verance of Jerusalem" (Luke 2:36-38). All items in this dictionary are from Fr.

    We continue our Patristic Rosary Project today with the:4th Joyful Mystery: The PresentationWe are made in God’s image and likeness and Christ came into the world to reveal man for fully to him (GS 22). We are radically in unity with Christ and, through Him, with each other. In this light, read the words of 3rd century Alexandria writer Origen (+254): So, when He died, we died with Him, and when He rose, we rose with Him. Likewise, we were also circumcised along with Him. After His circumcision, we were cleansed by a solemn purification. Hence we have no need...

    “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple” (Luke 2:22-40)There’s Christmas, and then there are the days after Christmas. What happened to baby Jesus in the days and weeks after his birth? Our text today is one the few places where we have an account of what happened during that time. It’s the story of the Presentation of Our Lord, forty days after his birth, the day when “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple.” Actually, the first event after Christmas we read about from Jesus’ life is found in the one verse in between the Christmas Gospel and...
