Gospel Reflection: Sunday February 2, 2020

The Presentation of the Lord – Sunday Feb 2, 2020.
Today we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the
Lord. Discuss with the family the persons of Simeon and
Anna as they meet Jesus. (Luke 2: 25–40).

Because Simeon and Anna lived lives of prayer and fasting
in the Temple, they were filled with the Spirit of God. That is
why they were able to identify Jesus as the Savior even
though Jesus was only a baby. To these two holy people,
he was recognizable as the Redeemer who had been
promised. Simeon described Jesus as “a light for revelation
to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel.”
We too are called to recognize Jesus as Lord. Together as
a family discuss ways to recognize Jesus as Lord by
praying and attending Mass, fasting, and serving others.

As a family, decide on one specific sacrifice you can make in
order to alleviate the suffering or need of someone you
know.
