NOTE: The Solemnity of the Presentation of the Lord because it falls on a Sunday this year) is celebrated instead of the 4th Sunday of Ordinary Time. The only podcast of Bishop Barron’s from this feast day is below.
This week we celebrate the feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple. In ancient Israel the Temple was the most important place in the world. It was the dwelling place of the Lord; it was where divinity and humanity embraced. But the nation of Israel had gone away from right worship of God. The Christ child is the divine and human in one and thus brings humanity back on line with God.
