Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph (Dec. 31, 2017)
God’s Salvation Among Us
Simeon was a man who has been “awaiting the consolation of Israel” his whole life. This life-long yearning was satisfied the moment his eyes saw God’s salvation.
And who brought him this experience of God’s salvation? A simple and ordinary couple who fulfilled their responsibilities with God – observing what required of them as people of faith at that time, and their responsibilities as parents – doing what they knew as best for their son.
The mystery of the Incarnation, God-with-us, continues in the ordinary moments of life, and in the fulfillment of our daily responsibilities.
