Bishop of Miami celebrates Candlemas in the Extraordinary Form

Archbishop Thomas Wenski, the Archbishop of Miami, celebrated Candlemas (The Purification of Our Lady or Presentation of the Lord) on February 2nd in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. I feel that this is the only form of the feast's celebration that really brings to light (no pun intended) the splendour and significance of this feast as the Virgin Mary bears her divine Son, the Light of the World, into the temple forty days after His birth.
Nearly 75 priests and seminarians took part in the liturgy, as well as the assembled congregation. The Archbishop's homily is here and the diocese's report on the Mass is here.
