NOVEMBER 23, 2014 - "A PROMISE IS FULFILLED"

The childhood of the Mother of God is as much of a mystery to us as that of her Divine Son. What we do know about her early life has been handed down to us by sacred tradition.

These sources tell us that the Virgin Mary was born of humble, saintly parents – Joachim and Anna – who waited patiently to be blessed with a child. Still childless at an advanced age, Joachim and Anna made a solemn promise to God: if He would give them a child, they, in turn, would offer that child up to the service of the Lord in the temple.

God heard the fervent prayers of Joachim and Anna and a daughter was born to them. How great their joy must have been! What happiness the young girl Mary must have brought them! But they had made a solemn vow that had to be kept: Mary must be taken to Jerusalem for a higher calling!

The liturgical hymns prescribed for the Feast Day of the Entry of the Theotokos into the Temple vividly describe that fulfillment of this promise. We sing of a glorious procession of maidens carrying lamps as they lead the Mother of God into the Holy of Holies. We are told of Zacharias the great High Priest waiting to accept her. We hear the saintly Anna cry out to him: “Receive her of whom the prophets did preach in the spirit. Take her into the temple to be brought up in purity, so that she may become a divine throne to the Lord.”

The Feast Day of the Entry of the Theotokos into the Temple is a lesson in SACRIFICE, OBEDIENCE and DEDICATION. MY WE BE AS EAGER TO GIVE THE Lord whatever He may ask of us. May our lives be consecrated to serving Him as best we can.
