Episode 17 – The Glories of Mary: How the Purification of Mary Became the Presentation of Jesus

Father Edward Looney delves into the significance of the Purification of Mary, also known as the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple. He begins with a prayer, invoking God’s blessings and reflecting on Mary’s obedience and humility in fulfilling the law by presenting Jesus in the temple. Father Looney explores the Christological and Marian aspects of this event, highlighting Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice and Mary’s role as the one whose heart will be pierced with sorrow. Drawing from Saint Alphonsus Liguori’s discourse, he deepens the understanding of the Presentation as a pivotal moment in salvation history, linking it to the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and Mary’s unity with the martyrs.

Episode 17 covers part two, discourse six.
