Feast of the Purification
#3
I went to the Solemn Mass for Candlemas too. We lit our candles during the gospel, but also from the Sanctus until it was time to receive communion. The sermon you heard sounds great, my priest said much the same thing but also that in the Old Law the ritual meant the first born son was released from service at the temple, and that this symbolically means Christ was not compelled to be our "High Priest", but rather His incarnation, death, and resurrection was a totally free gift of Himself to us.
