This Sunday we celebrate the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple, also called Candlemans Day. Chris, the true light of the world, is presented in the temple. Candles used in the church and at home are blessed this day, as the tradition of keeping blessed candles in the home has long been practiced. When the priest would come with the Eucharist for someone who is ill the candles and the crucifix were stationed near, and then the priest would administer the Sacrament of the Sick and the person would receive the Eucharist. A beautiful practice. Many people Father and I take Communion to still practice this act of honor for the Blessed Sacrament. So today we bless these candles and for example the candle used to bless throats for the Feast of Saint Blase celebrated this Monday.
