Today we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple.
Even though Jesus was still just a baby, about 40 days old we can assume, both Simeon and Ana were given the Grace to recognise who He was and to openly proclaim that recognition ..."At last O Divine Master.....my eyes have seen Your Salvation....a light to Enlighten"
Today we also remember all people who have consecrated their lives to God as Religious men and women.Who, through faithfully living out their consecration, have brought the Light of Christ to all corners of the world.
Let us pray that Jesus the Light of the World will Enlighten the Darkness of this world we live in. We remember especially young men and women who are considering a vocation to Religious Life, that Christ will give them the Light to recognise Him in their lives and the courage to openly proclaim this through responding to His call and invitation to them.
Have a blessed and light filled day!
