Candlemas

When Jesus is presented in the Temple, the old man Simeon recognises that here at last is the Christ that he has been longing for. He represents two things – Israel longing for the Messiah and us the Church, the new Israel recognising Christ the Light of the World and knowing now that nothing else in life matters. May we recognise Christ our Light in every single good thing that happens to us in our life.
