Marian Presentation

Presentation titian
Titian, Presentation of the Virgin Mary.

Today is the feast of the Presentation of Mary, of course; the Gospel reading is interesting, and underlines the point that it could also be called the feast of the preparation of Mary, or the education of Mary:

And it came to pass, as He spoke these things, a certain woman from the crowd lifting up her voice said to Him: Blessed is the womb that bore Thee, and the paps that gave Thee suck. But He said: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.
