WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR CONSECRATED LIFE

Today on this icy day we celebrate the beautiful feast of Candlemass—the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord! This morning we processed from the Chapter Hall to the Choir with lighted candles singing a beautiful hymn used for this procession. At the end of Mass we sang the Troparion for this feast of the Meeting of Our Lord in Temple as it is called in the Eastern Liturgy. Below is an audio of this beautiful hymn.
