The presentation of Jesus in the Temple by Mary and Joseph connects the old to the new. Jesus is shown to be both subject to the Law and the first born Son who belongs to God.

Everyone has a vocation from God. It is a humble act of Faith to submit to God’s plan for us. Am I courageous enough to do so?

O Holy Spirit, grant me a docile spirit. May I be keen in listening to God’s plan and forthright in doing what God has planned for me.
