Joyful Mysteries - Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

According to Mosaic Law a woman who gave birth to a male child was to present the child at the temple on the 40th day after the birth.  The mother was also purified at this time.  Mary and Joseph are shown here with Jesus and Simeon who proclaimed he had seen the Salvation planned by God.  

The Feast of the Presentation (Candlemas) is February 2nd.
