2 February 2023 ~ Presentation of our Lord

 

The Collect for The Presentation of our Lord:

Almighty and everliving God, we humbly pray that, as your only-begotten Son was this day presented in the temple, so we may be presented to you with pure and clean hearts by Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 




Saint Brigid of Kildare, Monastic, c. 523 (February 1)

One of the most beloved Irish saints. Brigid assisted the poor, founded an early monastery for women, and actively participated in leadership and in policy-making decisions not only within her own monastic federation but also within church conventions.
