Today, February 2, is a very important day for us Catholics, as it is the day the Church celebrates the Presentation of Jesus to the Temple. This occurs forty days after the birth of Jesus and is also known as Candlemas day.We have a clip from the film Mary of Nazareth, courtesy of our friends at Ignatius Press that illustrates the events of that day. Have a look below:This film, Mary of Nazareth can be purchased on their website at www.ignatius.com.Every month the Pope publishes a video where he invites the community to pray for a specific intention.
