Did you know?

Feb 2 is the day the Catholic Church celebrates the Presentation of the Lord. When Joseph and Mary went to Jerusalem and offered the sacrifice of a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.

Did you know that all the consecrated persons throughout the world renew their vows today.

I guess in honor of Simeon and Anna at the temple.

Pretty Cool!!!

I was aware of the Feast. I think it's often referred to as Candlemas, but I did not know about the renewal of vows. Very cool! God bless our priests, consecrated brothers and sisters!

It was also Ground Hog's Day. So does that mean that if Mary and Joseph saw their shawdows when leaving the temple, that we have 6 more weeks of Lent?
