Today the Church celebrates The Presentation of Our Lord
Jesus Christ in the Temple. The collect of the day is found on page 239 of The
Book of Common Prayer. The Presentation, February 2 Almighty and everliving God, we humbly pray that, as your
only-begotten Son was this day presented in the temple, so we may be presented
to you with pure and clean hearts by Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and
reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
