Happy Candelmas!


Happy Candelmas, the feast of the Presentation of the Lord!

On this feast day, we remember the Song of Simeon (nuncdimittis), the ancient rendering of the beautiful words of realized expectation from Luke's Gospel that the Church has prayed since the 4th century. Here's a lovely musical adaptation of this prayer.
