Age Of The Messiah

candle-1421437Candlemas Ritual for Humanity
Ushers in Law to redeem through sacrifice
Christ embeds himself into us
Accepts and chooses us to be His people
God bears divine presence
So the world can communicate with
One True God

Suffering a sacrifice, redemptive offering,
Accomplishes reconciliation with God
God is with humanity through Christ

Christ’s entering into this ritual, into the temple
Begins the effecting of the restoration
Setting all people in right relationship
With God

St. Luke’s Gospel says this is
the Revelation of the Divine Presence

Christ enters and a new age begins for the world
The Age of The Messiah
God with us

Candle recalls divine presence as a “pillar of fire”
Christ Pillar of Fire
Lead us
