    February 2 marks the Feast of the Purification when Mary and Joseph present Jesus in the temple in fulfillment of the old law. I have chosen a hymn written just for this occasion by one of the Catholic church’s greatest hymn writers. His hymns have become universal and are found in both Catholic and non-Catholic hymn books. Please take a few moments to read about this wonderful Catholic hymn. Several melodies were found for this hymn, and I hope one of the melodies featured in this write-up will make its debut in your choir for the Feast of the Purification.
