Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection    

          

     Patience and faithful- ness also characterize the two elderly Jew- ish people we meet in the Gospel. Simeon and Anna are each portrayed as ex- tremely devout, vir- tually living in God’s house. For years they patiently prayed in the temple in Jerusalem every day. When encountering the boy Jesus, they each immediately recognize the Savior of the world. Simeon, believing that he would not die until he had seen the Christ, prays to God, “Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace.” Their patience and faithful- ness have been rewarded. Just seeing Jesus was enough.

     La paciencia y la delidad también caracterizan a los dos ancianos judíos que encontramos en el Evangelio. La descripción tanto de Simeón como de Ana es que eran extremadamente piadosos y que virtualmente Vi- vian en la casa de Dios. Durante años ambos oraron pacientemente en el templo de Jerusalén todos los días. Cada uno de ellos, al ver a Jesús Niño, reconoció inme- diatamente al Salvador del mundo. Simeón, porque creyó que no moriría hasta haber visto al Cristo, ora a Dios de esta manera: “Señor, ya puedes dejar morir en paz a tu siervo”. La paciencia y la delidad de ellos tuvieron recompensa. Ver a Jesús fue su ciente.

Quote for the Week... 

“When we encounter others, do we bring them the warmth of charity or do we stay closed up and warm only ourselves before our fireplace?”
