Simeon and Anna

Home | Simeon and Anna

After all the good wishes for the new year, Mary is talking about preparing cookies and cakes. Joseph loves them. They have visited the temple on the 40th day after the birth of Jesus to present him to God. They met two special persons. The prophet Simeon, an old man, took Jesus in his arms, the moment he saw Joseph, Mary, and the baby. ‘Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation,’ is what he said. But he was also very serious, hinting about something very dramatic that will happen in the life of the little baby. ‘A sword will pierce through your own soul…’ Mary doesn’t know what to think about it. After that, an old lady, Anna, is worshipping God because of little Jesus. Mary is also mentioning that there’s a special star on the nightly sky.
