“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 2:28-31




Simeon took the child [Jesus] in his arms

and praised God saying,

“Lord, now I can die in peace!

As You promised me,

I have seen the Saviour

You have given to all people…”


– Luke 2:28-31 (NLT)






Simeon’s emotions,

which he so beautifully expresses as he holds the child Jesus in his arms,

can be our own

…as we receive the Sacred Host in our hands,

every time we go to Holy Communion.






I love You, Jesus, but I am not worthy.

Please say the word, heal me, and fill me with your peace.
