    Lord, Hear our Prayer.

    Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaid- ed. Inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

    Saturday’s feast of the Presentation is a day for the blessing of candles. Why does liturgy require candles? In the first years of the church, worship was often at night, and candles and torches were carried from place to place within the worship space as needed. Candles were also a mark of festivity and hospitality when people gathered for prayer in homes, and later on in large buildings with thick walls and dark corners. But even after gas- light and electricity, candles were kept. Part of the reason has to do with the warm, clean light of a candle’s flame. Candles are a good sign of the partnership of God and creation: wax made by bees, gathered and fashioned by human hands into something beautiful and useful. In order for the light to shine, the candle surrenders itself, almost as if it is pouring itself out so that the light can flood into the world. The candle of baptism, placed into our hands, and carried again and again, speaks silently of that same wisdom. If you would save your life, you must lose it. You must pour your life out like Christ so that you may be filled with the light of his love. —James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

    El día 3 de febrero se celebra entre misas, mariachis, fuegos artificiales y muchas expresiones de religiosidad popular, la fies- ta de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción de Suyapa en Hondu- ras. Fue un sábado del mes de febrero, cuando Alejandro Colin- dres, un joven humilde labrador, y Jorge Martínez, un niño de ocho años, la encontraron. Según la tradición estos llegaron cansados a la quebrada del Piligüín. Acostándose sobre el sue- lo, Alejandro sintió lo que le parecía una piedra en su espalda. Por más que intentaba arrojarla lejos, cuando se acostaba sen- tía la misma piedra. Por fin en lugar de tirarla, la puso en su mochila y al amanecer descubrió que no era piedra sino una pequeña imagen de María (6.5 cm.) con rostro indígena tallada en madera. En 1780 se le construyó un templo y en 1796 se registró su primer milagro. El Papa Pío XII la proclamó Patrona de la República de Honduras en 1925. En las advocaciones latinoamericanas ella es nombrada como la fortaleza de los hu- mildes. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co
