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.
February 02, 2020 – Sunday
Gospel: Luke 2: 22-40
The Holy Spirit was in him
Today is the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. In the gospel, a faithful man named Simeon came to visit as Jesus is about to be presented in the temple. It was said that “the Holy Spirit was in him” and was “assured” and “comforted” by the Holy Spirit. He then announced the salvation of people through Jesus.
Let us reflect and recall the moments where Jesus was presented to us in the different scenarios we face in our daily life. Do we easily see Jesus as our light and salvation? Have we felt how the Holy Spirit guided us in those moments we want to see Jesus in our relationships and in society? Do we seek his guidance and presence in our daily lives?
Mother Mary, direct us to the Holy Spirit in our daily endeavors to be our guide, teacher and counselor.
