13. Thursday, February 2, 4 B.C. of the old solar calendar of the Jews: The Presentation.


Monday, January 1, 4 B.C. of the old solar calendar of the Jews: When eight days were completed, it was time to circumcise Him and He was named Jesus, the name the angel Gabriel given Him before His conception in the womb. (Luke 2:21).

The Presentation is the fourth Mystery of the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.

Thursday, February 2, 4 B.C. of the old solar calendar of the Jews: It was the fortieth day from the Nativity.

Holy Mother Mary was seventeen years four months and twenty-five days old.

The Law of Moses had ordered their purification, so they went to Jerusalem.

Joseph and Mary took Jesus to the Temple, and offer Him to the Lord God, as prescribed in the Law of the Lord, “Every first-born male is to be consecrated to the Lord” and to offer a sacrifice as mentioned in the Law of the Lord, “A pair of doves or two young pigeons.”

There was an old man called Simeon who was righteous and devout. He was looking for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him, and it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Moved by the Holy Spirit, he came into the temple courts. When the parents brought into the Child Jesus for to do the custom of the Law required, Simeon took Him in his arms, and praised the Lord God. (Luke 2:22-38).

“The Lord, as You have promised, You now dismiss Your servant in peace. I have seen Your salvation in my eyes. You have prepared this Light for all people, for the Gentiles, and a glory to Your people Israel.”

Joseph and Mary marveled at what was told about Him.

Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary.

“This Child is appointed for the falling and rising up of the many people of Israel, and to be a sign that will go against this Child, and the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

The smile of her disappeared. There also was a prophetess, Anna who was a daughter of Phanuel of the tribe of Asher, after her girlhood she lived seven years with her husband. She was a widow of about eighty-four years old, and she never left the Temple, but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. She came to them, and she gave thanks to the Lord God, and she talked about Him to all those who were looking for the redemption in Jerusalem.

Monday, January 1, 4 B.C. of the old solar calendar of the Jews – Wednesday, September 8, 22 B.C. of the old solar calendar of the Jews = Seventeen years four months and twenty-five days. So Holy Mother Mary was seventeen years four months and twenty-five days old.
