Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: Luke 2:22-40
“For my eyes have seen your salvation.”
In the gospel today, Simeon was waiting all his life for the promised Messiah, the one who will save God’s people. Mary and Joseph presented Jesus to him and he carried him in his arms. He saw the salvation in the little child. Sometimes, Christ is presented to us in ways that are little or not in the way we expect it to be. We think the one we are waiting for all our life has not arrived but in reality, Christ is already with us. Let us embrace him too with all our being.
