Happy Feast of The Presentation Of Our Lady in the Temple
Although only a double major in our Roman Rite The Passionists and Suplicans keep it as a double first class and the Carmelites Redemptorists and Servites a double of the second class

Existing for over a hundred and fifty years before the Canon of the Bible was issued It is a Sacred Tradition Feast that comes originally from the Eastern Catholic Church where it became an eastern universal Feast in the 500s AD “A woman born under the Law” would give birth to a new Law. Therefore Courts and Judges would never sit in session on this day http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12400a.htm

On the spot where the law of the old gods (Venus Isis and Minerva) and it’s ruins emerged one of the major Churches of Rome the Basilica of Saint Mary ABOVE Minerva Santa Maria Sopra Minerva. Before Minerva it was the Goddess Isis and before her it was Venus But to Minerva they clung – She sits interior above in the library of congress in Washington DC’s Masonic architects of the new religion’s insistence

Via this Feast ….not properly taught , nor counter contested nor evangelized correctly the fundamentalists attribute Catholicism as worship to yet a new Goddess and a continuation of polytheism This is why it’s essential to attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on this day , such as the traditional Mass at Holy Innocents NYC offered @ 6pm in white.

She is the theme of Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, England the oldest surviving Freemasonry lodge in the world

She is the seal of the State of California

But little miverva, even though only part of mythology, is far beneath the feet of the actual Mother of God who stands at the feet of the Son of Justice- see links below —>
