Candlemas Day

Today is traditionally called Candlemas Day or The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple.

You can find the scripture readings here (esp. Luke 2: 22 - 40).

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 for ever. Amen.
