The Presentation of Our Lord by Clay Rosaries

Today is the feast of the Presentation of Our Lord and I meant to write an original post, but upon seeing this video posted on the Apostolate of Hannah's Tears, I knew what I needed to do. Steal this idea. If the link below doesn't work (it's not working for me right now) click through to the Apostolate of Hannah's Tears blog to see it and then come back here to write your thoughts :)

Michael Card singing "Now that I've held Him in my arms"

The music video is copyrighted so you have to follow the link to You Tube. It's worth it. I was moved to tears this morning while my kids were squirming and crawling all over me. It brought a whole new meaning to what the Presentation of Our Lord is all about. I always struggle with this mystery of the rosary, so this music video helps me to see more meaning behind the Presentation. I understand more how Jesus fulfills the "law". (as he has been saying the last two Sunday Gospels). He didn't have to be circumcised in temple as all the Jewish boys did. Mary and Joseph knew that, but they brought him there anyway. I still don't understand it completely, but at least now, I see the connection. What are your thoughts on this mystery? What do you meditate on when you pray the fourth Joyful Mystery? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for this wonderful post, Sarah. The link did not work, but I found a You Tube one that did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBZiPRPogn0 I am not sure if it is the same one or not, but what a wonderful visual and song for meditating on the 4th Joyful Mystery!
