On the feast of the Presentation of Christ, we reflect on the wondrous gift of God incarnate. Jesus Christ, Who is God from before all time, humbles Himself not only to be born as a Child, but chooses to be born into a life of earthly poverty! St. Joseph the Betrothed and the Panagia were tοο poor tο offer a sacrificial lamb at the Temple, so they offered two turtle doves as the custom provided. St. Gregory the Theologian says, “while He was rich, He became poor so that we might become rich with His divinity.”
