At Candlemas

From the Presentation of the Lord, also called Candlemas. Here the priest is saying the Gloria (or the Collect, not sure when I took this). The Collect is a beautiful one:

Almighty ever-living God,
we humbly implore your majesty
that, just as your Only Begotten Son
 was presented on this day in the Temple
 in the substance of our flesh,
 so, by your grace,
we may be presented to you with minds made pure.

Thanks again to Melanie for including me here in the Association. I don't manage a blog post every day, but I am doing so this week, going along with Conversion Diary's "7 Posts in 7 Days" effort. All new photo posts, go see! .
