“Behold,” said the prophet Simeon, “This child is destined for the rise and fall of many…”

Today the Catholic church celebrates the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Presentation of Jesus at the temple. According to Mosaic law Jesus was presented in the temple forty days after His birth and Mary was purified. It is also called Candlemas Day, since the blessing of candles is given.

In our little domestic church we celebrated (as always) with coloring pages.
