Tuesday, February 2, Presentation of the Lord
Daily Gospel (Lk 2, 22-40): When the time came for their 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: "Everything firstborn male is to be consecrated to the 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 on him, took him in his arms and praised God, saying, "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 child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign spoken against you yourself a sword will pierce your soul - in order to be revealed! the thoughts of many hearts. "
There was also a prophetess, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, elderly; after marriage she had lived seven years with her husband, a widow to eighty-four years; She never left the Temple, serving God night and day with fasting and prayers. As at that very hour she gave thanks to God and spoke of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. So they performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.
