Luke 2:22-40

Mary and Joseph followed the Jewish law by bringing Jesus, their firstborn, to the temple and having him circumcised. We are told that after doing so, they returned home and raised their son to be and to become what God willed him to be.

At the threshold of a new year, we pray that God will watch over us, protect us from all evil, and grant us peace.
