The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary commemorates "that dedication of herself which Mary made to God from her very childhood under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit who filled her with grace at her Immaculate Conception."
Mary, at the age of three, was brought by her parents to the Temple, in fulfillment of a vow, there to be educated.
