This field is the second from left of the upper row on the southern wall, right to a narrow window.

Mary's father, Joachim, tells Anna his wife that he wishes to bring their child to the Temple of the Lord. Anna responds that they should wait until the child is three years old lest she yearn for her parents. When the day arrived, the undefiled daughters of the Hebrews were invited to accompany Mary with their lamps burning to the Temple. There the priest received her , blessed her, and kissed her in welcome. He proclaimed, ''The Lord has magnified thy name in all generations. In thee, the Lord will manifest His redemption to the sons of Israel.'' Mary was placed on the third step of the Temple and there danced with joy and all the house of Israel loved her. It was there that she was nurtured and her parents returned glorifying the Almighty.
