Almighty and everliving God, we humbly beseech thee that, as thy only-begotten Son was this day presented in the temple, so we may be presented unto thee with pure and clean hearts by the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Today the Church celebrates the Presentation of Christ in the Temple (#Candlemas). This hand-coloured #woodcut showing the Virgin presenting Christ to Simeon comes from a 1498 Book of Hours for Rouen use, printed on vellum. [[ZZ]1488.5] pic.twitter.com/8LZ3SzN9Lt
