About the event
Coming forty days after Christmas Day, the feast of the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple reminds us of the Law (Exodus 13:2, 22:29) that required Jewish parents to redeem the lives of their firstborn sons by an offering, because every firstborn son was to be dedicated to God in memory of the Israelites’ deliverance from Egypt, when the firstborn sons of the Egyptians were slain and those of faithful Israel were spared.
