"She gave thanks to God and spoke about the child"
Prophetess Anna, while waiting for the Messiah to come, spent all her time fasting and praying in the temple. And when the time came when she finally met Jesus, she was able to recognize Him and her spirit was so filled with joy and gratitude that he went telling other people about Him.
Today, like Anna, we are invited to be attentive to Jesus's presence in our lives, rejoice in Him, and let Him fill our hearts with graces so it could overflow to the people around us.
Dear Jesus, thank you for being always present for us. Grant us the eyes to recognize your presence in the littlest of things around us and the openness to receive your graces and share it to others. Amen.
