The Lord comes to his temple; let us rejoice and adore him.
Tell us, Simeon, whom do you carry in your arms, as you enter the Temple so joyfully?
To whom do you address your words: “Now I can depart in peace, for I have seen my salvation”?
It is the child born of a Virgin; it is the Word of God become flesh for us.
Surrounded with the sounds of inspired songs, we also have encountered the Christ.
We have welcomed the One who brought salvation to Simeon.
This is the One who spoke through the prophets.
