Inspiring Catholic Reflection for the Day

1.      02 February marks the feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the temple. It was after 40 days of his birth according to Jewish law. In fact, he had no need to follow the laws and traditions. There was no need to be purified or offered as holy to the Lord because he is purity and holiness itself.

2.       His presentation in the temple is symbolic and significative. It signifies the function and effect of his messianic role. As the incarnate savior and the messiah, he presents and offers himself to the Father in humble obedience. He becomes like us in every respect except sin. He subjects himself to human law and obligations in total solidarity with us.

3.       Further, his presentation ritual also indicates the effect of his messianic role. By his self-offering, he offers all as “pleasing” to the Lord. His purification ceremony indicates the purification that he brings to all. He propitiates the sins of the people. And the words in Malachi apply very well to his doing. “He is like a refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver”.

4.       From the presence of Simeon, a righteous and devout man, in the temple it becomes still clear that the presented Jesus was destined for the “consolation of Israel”, “salvation that God has prepared in the presence of all peoples”, “a light for revelation to the Gentiles”, and for “glory to the people Israel”.

5.       The presentation of the Lord in the temple is a sacred call for each one of us, to be ever on the holy project of presentation, purification, and salvation. We are called to present ourselves as pleasing offerings to God. We need to constantly purify ourselves from all our burdens of sin. And we need to continue the same mission of salvation.

Direction For Life

The presentation of the Lord is a reminder of the beauty and duty of our consecration. We are consecrated to the Lord as offerings and we need to be committed to offering others also to God
