Entry into the Temple, Coptic

The first post in this two-part blog considered Joachim and Anna's sacrifice of their daughter to the Temple and how it was women's veneration that turned its commemoration into a feast day. Here is the second part of that meditation.

It certainly went to places we weren't expecting!
