For 2023, I quite randomly selected the book of Lives of Saints published in 1955 by Catholic Book Publishing for my daily reading on Saints.  I'm embarrassed to write that it took about two weeks for me to realize that during 2022 I read the 2005 edition of this same book, apparently the 5th edition.  This is a fascinating lesson in how things have changed in the world.  The 1995 edition says printed in USA, 2005 says printed in China.
I've been struggling to imagine why the Saints have changed so much and perhaps I'll comment later on some of the differences.  In both books, today (2/2) is called feast of Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple, also feast of Purification of the Blessed Virgin, and also feast of Candlemas Day.  By contrast our parish calendar shows Presentation of the Lord, World Day for Consecrated Life, and Ground Hog Day.

Psalm 65 Verse 10   
You visit the earth and water it,   
make it abundantly fertile.   
God's stream is filled with water;   
with it you supply the world with grain.

The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord was known originally as the Feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary.   
The Church at Jerusalem observed the feast as early as the first half of the fourth century.

'The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross.'

'How can you, by love, make your own the sufferings of our sweet Jesus? God will teach you how when it pleases Him, for He alone can do so. The soul inflamed with the love of God, without distraction, in pure and simple faith, suddenly finds herself, when God pleases, penetrated with the sufferings of Jesus; in a glance of faith she sees them all, without understanding; for the Passion of Our Saviour is a labor of love, and the soul thus lost in God, Who is all charity, all love, makes of herself a fount of love and sorrow.'

'What regret would be yours at the hour of death, should you see yourself deprived of the crown which awaits you if you are faithful in generously following the light that our Lord gives you. And, to tell you the truth, you will find peace and rest when you have sacrificed all for God.'
