[ In the Memory of María Blanca ]
Friends of the Rosary:
We celebrate today, January 2nd, 40 days after Christmas, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas Day. It commemorates through the blessing and lighting of candles that Christ is the light of the world.
In conjunction with the Feast of the Presentation, the Catholic Church celebrates the World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life today. Those with a consecrated vocation — with lives of poverty, chastity, and obedience — are also called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples.
Regardless of the vocation, we are all called to union with Christ and to do our part to build up the Kingdom of God.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
