We will celebrate The Feast of The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple
on Sunday, January 30
because the actual feast day of this milestone in Jesus' life is February 2. The roles of the prophets Simeon (think Nunc dimittis
in Evening Prayer) and Anna are emphasized on this day. A female prophet?
YES! Her name is Anna, and she was an 84-year old widow when Jesus was brought to the temple as an infant. #wisewoman #candlemas #nuncdimittis
