Catholic Feast

Circumcision was instituted by God, as a sign of the covenant that he celebrated with Abraham and his lineage. With this rite was added the one who received him to the people of God, he was obliged to comply with the Mosaic Law and he became a creditor of the divine promises: he confessed his faith in the Redeemer, son of Abraham.

Christ wanted to submit to this bloody ceremony, to prove that he was a true son of Abraham, and to set an example of obedience and free the redeemed from that heavy yoke.

V/. Our Lord Jesus Christ.
R/. Pray for us.
