Gospel: Luke 2:22-40
“The favor of God was upon him”
Jesus a great light, God’s gift to mankind, is presented in the temple. God’s favor resting on him as he grew in wisdom and strength. Simeon and Anna who prayed and waited in their old age recognized him and offered praises and thanksgiving to God for our redemption. May we too have the eyes and heart to recognize Jesus in surprising places and in the people in our midst . Let us be open to collaborate in God’s divine plan for all mankind. Uniting ourselves in spirit with Jesus, Mary and Joseph. For as a child of God, we too are gifted to give.
