November 21: PRESENTATION OF OUR LADY


Nov. 21- Presentation of Our Lady

November 21
PRESENTATION OF OUR LADY

 

Today’s memorial commemorates the commitment Our Lady made to the Lord when she was moved by the grace of the Holy Spirit during her childhood to consecrate herself completely to God (see Paul VI Apostolic Exhortation, “Marialis cultus”, 2 February 1974,8).

“Mary’s complete dedication was efficacious, and continued to grow as her life went on. Her example moves us not to withhold anything in our own life of dedication to the Lord…

Let us ask Our Lady’s help today in living our own dedication to the full, in whatever state God has placed us, in accordance with the specific vocation we have received from the Lord… Let us ask Our Lady today that there may be many who, as our Mother Mary did from the time of her youth, follow the inspirations of the Holy Spirit and give their lives entirely over to the Lord’s service (F. Fernández Carvajal, “In Conversation With God”, vol. 7, n. 41).”
