Daily Mass: The Canticle of Simeon. Catholic Inspiration

Three Great Things

Fr. Andrew’s Daily Mass Homily Podcast (5th Day in the Octave of Christmas)

Simeon, filled with the Holy Spirit, held the baby Jesus in his arms and praised God, saying:

“Lord, now let your servant go in peace;
your word has been fulfilled:
my own eyes have seen the salvation
which you prepared in the sight of every people,
a light to reveal you to the nations
and the glory of your people Israel.”  (Luke 2:29-32)

May our eyes be open, to see God’s hand touching and blessing our lives today!
