Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Plan of Salvation – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Prophet Simeon prophesized to Mary that her “Son” will bring the fall and rise of many in Israel”.  Mary pondered and surrendered her will to God’s Will. Ponder on, “Pray for the grace to obey God’s Will even if this demands great sacrifices, surrender and services to His People.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 2:33-35

As the father and mother of Jesus stood wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘You see this child, he is destined for the fall and for the rising of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is  rejected – and a sword will pierce your own soul too – so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’
