Image may contain: 5 people"Mary, in the temple in Jerusalem, was the first to carry out this offering of Christ to the Father. By this action she acknowledged in one act that the child she held in her arms belongs first and foremost to his Father and not to her, but also by offering him with all that would be his life, she offers us who are members of Christ, she offers herself and prays for all of humanity. We also in our prayer can offer the Christ to God for the salvation of the world by offering ourselves with all the joyful or sorrowful stages of our journey. 
John Tauler, O.P. (1300-1361)
