    Presentation of the Lord

    February 2, 2020

    The Presence of God comes in unexpected moments!

    Fr. Anthony Ligato

    Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

    "Thus, says the Lord God: Lo, I am sending my messenger

    to prepare the way before me; and suddenly there will come

    to the temple the Lord whom you seek and the messenger

    of the covenant whom you desire.” (Malachi 3:1-3) Malachi

    prophetically proclaims that God’s promise will suddenly

    appear to the people of Israel in the Temple. Malachi’s

    prophecy was a warning to the people of Israel that the

    Lord whom they longed and desired to see his coming

    would not come with vindication but rather judgement. The

    Feast of the Presentation of the Lord commemorates the

    fulfillment of the promise Malachi had spoken that the pres-

    ence of God has been made known to us in Jesus being pre-

    sented in the Temple in Jerusalem by Mary and Joseph.

    On the day Jesus was presented at the Temple the words of

    the Prophet Malachi were fulfilled, for on that day; the

    Lord whom the people of Israel had sought came to the

    Temple in Jerusalem as an infant. The presence of God is

    with us in this Church today and comes to us in unex-

    pected moments and in unexpected ways through people

    whom we do not readily recognize as bearer of God’s word.

    Simeon was one of those people who revealed that God is

    made present to us in unexpected ways. Simeon recognizes

    that this child is a light for revelation but not all will accept

    this revealed truth. This infant is seen by Simeon as light

    emanating from light. "Now Master, you may let your

    servant go in peace, according to your word, for my eyes

    have seen your salvation, which you prepared in the sight of

    all the people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and

    glory for your people Israel." (Luke 2:22-40)

    That light can be seen clearly in the vigil candle that tells us

    that Jesus is present in the consecrated hosts that are in

    reserve in the Tabernacle and in us, a living Tabernacle of

    the Lord from whom the light of Christ shines. There is the

    tradition in the church to bless candles during the Mass for

    people to carry home and light them once they are home.

    Those candles are the visible presence of Jesus Christ, but

    even more so, we are the visible presence of Jesus

    Christ. The light of Christ which emanates from us helps

    others recognize that Jesus is present in us as individuals,

    as a community of faith gathered in this Church and as a

    people of God who are living in this world.

    Jesus was presented by Mary and Joseph in the temple; he

    was presented to the world as a merciful and loving sacri-

    fice for the forgiveness of humanities sins. "He has be-

    come like his brothers and sisters in every way, that he

    might be a merciful and faithful high priest before God to

    expiate the sins of the people. (Hebrews 2:14-18) We have

    been presented as well, when our parents and God parents

    brought us into the church to receive the Sacrament of

    Baptism.

    Re-Igniting Our Faith

    We are at the beginning of the 2019 Re-Igniting Our Faith

    work of people like you that help make this exciting effort a

    success! Pledges may be mailed or dropped off to the Parish

    Office or place them in the collection basket.

    Campaign Goal $427,245.00

    Thank you for your support, Fr. Anthony Ligato

    Continued..

    In those waters we are illumined by the Light of Christ

    and we are to then present ourselves to Christ in the same

    way Christ has presented himself to us. Jesus is a reve-

    lation to the nations, and we are called to be a revelation to

    the nations by the fact that the light of God’s word is to

    emanate from us.

    The Responsorial Psalm 24:7-10 could almost be a ques-

    tion from someone who is seeking the light over the dark-

    ness, “Who is this King of Glory?” We as those illumined

    by the light respond back, “It is the Lord!” The celebra-

    tion of the Presentation of the Lord provides an opportuni-

    ty to examine our conscience and ask ourselves how well

    we are illuminating the way for others? Simeon and Anna

    spoke their prophetic words that day when Jesus was pre-

    sented in the Temple and they have helped illuminate the

    way for us all ever since.

    Yours in Christ,

    Fr. Anthony Ligato
