The Obédience


                                                  Gospel according to Saint Luke II 1-5

Now at this time Caesar Augustus issued a decree for a census of the whole world to be taken. This census –the first-took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria, and everyone went to his own town to be registered. So Joseph set out from the town of Nazareth in Galilee and travelled up to Judaea, to the town of David called Bethlehem, since he was of David’s House and line, in order to be registered together with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 

Gospel according to Saint Luke II 22-24

 And when the day came for them to be purified as laid down by the Law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord –observing what stands written in the Law of the Lord: Every first born male must be consecrated to the Lord- and also to offer in sacrifice, in accordance with what is said in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.
