February 6 - External Solemnity of the Presentation

On Sunday, February 6, the External Solemnity of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple and the Purification of Mary was observed.  Candles were blessed, distributed and held by the faithful during the procession before Mass and during the Gospel and the Canon of the Mass until after Holy Communion.  For this reason this feast is also known as Candlemas.


  1. a treat indeed!

    Confidential to the Servers: Cut back on the incense! Our Chapel isn't the best ventilated...

  2. This is very touching. i love the latin mass.

  3. Mr. Dogood, what's this "cut back on the incense" nonsense?!? If a little is good, more is better!

  4. Fr. Eric, Keep up the good work. The Latin Mass is alive and well on Guam. Pax e bonum

    Happy Birthday Fr. Eric. I hope you are able to enjoy the back side of 50! God save Japan.
