The light that comes to enlighten humanity

February 2nd marks Candlemas Day, a feast that is also known as: The Presentation of the Lord, the Purification of Mary, the Feast of Light and the Feast of the Candles. All these names express the meaning of this feast.

Christ, who represents the light of the world shown by his mother in the sanctuary in Jerusalem, comes to illuminate mankind like the candle or the candles, from which the name Candlemas derives.

The parish leaflet of the Parish of Nuestra Señora del Pilar in Santa Cruz de Tenerife reports on this special date and more information.
