Today is the feast of Mary's presentation in the Temple. This is not in the Scriptures, but comes from an apocryphal Gospel called the Protoevangelium of James (scroll down to # 7 in the link for the part on the presentation.)
The Gospel of James, though apocryphal, is an interesting document. It's where we find the traditional names for Mary's parents, Joachim and Anne. Of course we can't rely on it as a historical document. Nevertheless, it's an important testimony to what the early Church believed about Mary. For example, it has a strong emphasis on Mary's virginity.
Perhaps one message we can take from today's feast is that Mary was always dedicated to God. She gave herself totally to him, and we can too.
On a personal note, I had my own "presentation" when I was a year old. On my birthday (the feast of the Immaculate Conception) my mother brought me down to church. In those days (the 50's) it was common for priests to bless children and I was dedicated to the Blessed Mother. I'm grateful to my mother for doing that for me.
