Feast of the Purification: February 2, 2020

To close the Christmas Season, Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary celebrated the Feast of the Purification of Our Lady with the blessing of candles and procession preceding the Mass. The candles were also held during certain parts of the Solemn Mass, such as during the Gospel and Preface. The candles represent Christ, the Light of the World, whom Simeon proclaimed in the Temple as  “a light to the revelation of the Gentiles and the glory of Israel.”
