On this episode, we discuss the Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, also known as the Purification of the Virgin Mary. We review the various traditions and customs of the feast while exploring its deep theological themes. We address purification, the logic behind Mosaic laws regarding the human body, motherhood, the Church of Women, the redemption of the firstborn male, and the significance of Simeon and Anna.
