Readings for today’s Mass
Here we find two good and faith filled people whose hearts have longed for the Savior. I like to imagine Simeon, gently taking the Christ child in his arms, gazing upon his delicate face and recognizing that this tiny baby was the one he had been waiting for. And Anna who spent years in the temple praying, fasting and preparing for this very moment when she too could see Christ face to face.
Simeon and Anna did not need works of healing or power to recognize the Savior in their midst. They just needed their hearts and eyes to be open and to let the Holy Spirit guide them to this very moment. Sometimes I think we are so preoccupied with finding God in BIG ways that we fail to miss the small ways He is present to us in our everyday lives. How do we find Him in the seemingly ordinary and mundane? We look! We prepare our hearts through prayer and maybe even fasting (yes, even though it is not Lent yet). We listen! We let the Holy Spirit guide our day and help us see Christ in our midst.
Take time this week to look for Christ in the everyday tasks, experiences, people and seemingly ORDINARY events of your life. You might just be surprised where you find him.
