Today the Church celebrates the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple, traditionally called Candlemas since on this day the candles which are to be used in the Church and by the faithful are blessed for the next year.

Almighty and everliving God, we humbly pray that, as Your only begotten Son was this day presented in the Temple, so we may be presented to You with pure and clean hearts by Jesus Christ Our Lord; who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
