Presentation of Christ in the Temple – Bergognone

In obedience to the Law of Moses, Mary and Joseph take Jesus to the Temple 8 days after His birth for circumcision and the purification of Our Lady. She hands Our Lord to the holy prophet Simeon who then foretells of Our Lady's sorrows saying, "Thy soul also a sword shall pierce..." This is by the artist A. Bergognone.
