Pope Francis reflects on the Feast of the Presentation


“Today we, like Mary and Simeon, want to take Jesus into our arms, to bring him to his  people. Surely we will be able to do so if we enter into the mystery in which Jesus himself is our guide. Let us bring others to Jesus, but let us also allow ourselves to be led by him. This is what we should be: guides who themselves are guided. May the Lord, through the intercession of Mary our Mother, Saint Joseph and Saints Simeon and Anna, grant to all of us what we sought in today’s opening prayer: to “be presented [to him] fully renewed in spirit”.”

(Homily, St Peter’s, Rome, 2nd February 2015)
