The Entrance into the Temple of Our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos


The icon of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple offers powerful reflections on God’s gifts to us. St. Gregory Palamas says that “they led this truly sanctified child of God…into the Temple of God. And she, being filled with Divine gifts even at such a tender age, … she, rather than others, determined what was being done over Her. In her manner she showed that she was not so much presented into the Temple, but that she herself entered into the service of God of her own accord, as if she had wings, striving towards this sacred and divine love.”

Posters of the 12 major feasts are available on the Parish Development webpage at
