Presentation

Presentation of Jesus in the Temple (1460-64)

by Giovanni Bellini

The Mother of God, the most pure Virgin, carried the true light in her arms and brought him to those who lay in darkness. We too should carry a light for all to see and reflect the radiance of the true light as we hasten to meet him.

-from a sermon by Saint Sophronius
