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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

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)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

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.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

My Lord Jesus,

I thank You for making it possible

for me to hold You, even if for just a few moments,

in the palm of my hand.

.

I thank You for the grace You have given me,

to feel what Simeon felt as he held You.

.

I thank You for making Yourself present in that host

which, unworthy as I am, I so gladly and humbly receive

every time I respond to Your healing call.

.

You, Lord, are all I need,

and I thank You for filling my heart with joy

and wonderous expectation.

.

Thank You, Jesus.

I love You, Jesus.

.

.

.

SHORT PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Thank You, Jesus.

I love You, Jesus.
