Lesson 622: Candlemas

 

Each year on February 2nd, the Church celebrates the 40th and last day of the Christmas Season. This Feastday has different names. Traditionally, it is more commonly referred to as Candlemas or as “The Feast of the Purification of our Lady.” Nowadays, it is more often referred to as “The Feast of the Presentation of Jesus.” In this lesson we will study and participate in the rich devotions for Candlemas and learn the history of today’s great Feast. We will cover the blessing of Candles done on this day, the spirituality of the Procession for Candlemas, and even learn why this feastday is the reason for the secular day called “Groundhog Day.”
