Dear Friend in the Lord,
Mary’s Sorrows – Fidelity: In today’s Gospel, Simeon prophesied to Mary about her and her Child’s Suffering, for the Salvation of many. Ponder on, “Many go to fortune tellers to find out their future. In our faith, we are called to trust in God’s Providence to provide and care for us, in spite of the ‘sorrows’ of our lives.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
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.’
