Feb 02 – Homily – Fr Joachim: They Prayed
Homily #150202n ( 08min) Play - Father points out that only Simeon and Anna recognized Our Lord when he was presented into the temple, and the reason is because they led lives of deep prayer which made them sensitive to the presence of God. And Our Lady was so united to God, that God united himself to her, and her joy is not diminished by all her sufferings. Let us enter into prayer, put our trust in Jesus, rely on the mediation of Mary, and recognize that at every Mass Our Lord comes into the temples of his churches, and at every communion into the temple of our bodies.
