Daily Gospel (Lk 2, 22-35): When the time came for the purification according to the Law of Moses, they took Jesus to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, as written in the law of the Lord: Every firstborn male shall be consecrated to Lord and to offer a sacrifice a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons, as is said in the law of the Lord.
And behold there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; This man was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel; and it was the Holy Spirit. It had been revealed by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ. Moved by the Spirit, he came to the Temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to fulfill what the Law prescribed for him, he took into his arms and blessed God and said: "Lord, now you can, as you say, let your servant depart in peace; because my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in sight of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel. "
His father and mother marveled at what was said about him Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother. "This is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign of contradiction -¡ya yourself a sword will pierce your soul - so that may be revealed the thoughts of many hearts. "
