Feast Presentation Virgin Mary to Temple

Tomorrow, December 4 2018virgin mary temple, we celebrate the Presentation of Virgin Mary to the Temple.
Early Christian tradition recounts that the Saints Joachim and Anna were pious and faithful, and served God in every way. Fifty years in their marriage, they had not been blessed with a child. They longed for a child and continued to beseech the Lord, promising to give their child to the Temple, in order to serve the Lord.
Unspeakable was their joy and gratefulness, when their daughter Mary was born.
St. Joachim and St. Anna kept their promise to the Eternal God, and brought their daughter to the Temple in Jerusalem, when St. Mary was just three years old.
The Feast of the Presentation of Virgin Mary to the Temple foretells the salvation by Jesus Christ, born from Virgin Mary.
