When the Most-holy Virgin Mary was three year old, her holy parents Joachim and Anna took her from Nazareth to Jerusalem to dedicate her to the service of God according to their earlier promise. At the Temple, she was met by the High Pries Zacharias. Zacharias led her into the "Holy of Holies" which a place where only the High Priest was allowed to enter. Mary's parents then offered sacrifice to God and returned home. Mary stayed in the Temple for 9 years. At 12 years old, she was betrothed to St. Joseph. This feast was introduced in Constantinople about 700 A.D.
Today it the prelude of the benevolence of God and the herald of the salvation of all people, for the Virgin openly appears in the temple of God and foretells Christ to all. Let us also with full voice exclaim to her: Rejoice, Fulfillment of the Creator's plan.
