Candlemas, to be celebrated Sunday February 1, marks the Presentation of Christ in the Temple. It’s one of the three days in the Christian year when material things are blessed in church. (The others are ashes on Ash Wednesday and palms on Palm Sunday). Consider bringing a candle from home to be blessed and used in your devotions or in time of stress.
