"The Presentation of our Lord in the Temple" or "Candlemas" is one of the oldest festivals in the Epiphany season. In the Roman church it was known as "The Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary," and in the Eastern church as "The Meeting of the Lord," a phrase which indicates the significance of  the meeting of Simeon and the baby Jesus, as recorded in this evening's gospel recorded, the second chapter of Luke. According to the Levitical custom Mary went to the temple with Jesus for the ceremony of "purification" required 40 days after childbirth. Following the period of isolation, she was to be readmitted to public worship. As she entered the temple, she was greeted by the aged Simeon and the prophetess Anna who had been promised that they would see the Messiah before death. Simeon's outburst of joy, the Nunc dimittis has found a place in our liturgy, both at the Communion Service and at Compline, or Evening Prayer.

When Christmas was observed on the day of our present festival of Epiphany, quite early in the development ot the Church year, the date of Presentation fell on February 14. However, its present date February 2, and it's relationship to Christmas, was set in the year 542 by the Emperor Justinian. In medieval Rome an added ceremony was the blessing and distribution of candles, from which the title Candlemas comes. We observe this tradition at out service through extensive use of candles.

Because the Candlemas tradition is an ancient one, an attempt has been made to use music, vestments, and symbols which reflect a medieval celebration
