After the New Years wishes Mary and Joseph were going to the temple in Jerusalem to present their little Jesus there. They are bringing a sacrifice with two doves. Jerusalem is an amazing city. But in the temple, something even more amazing happened with the encounter with an old prophet and an old lady. Simeon, the prophet, took Jesus in his arms, saying ‘Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation.’ But he also announced that something heavy would happen and that it will be like a sword that is going through the heart of Mary. She was quite shocked by it. Anna, an old lady, was also in the temple and she started praising God after she saw the little baby. ‘God is bringing the redemption of Jerusalem’, she said. And in the meanwhile, there is still the new star on the nightly sky. It feels significant.
