Father's reflection

PRESENTATION OF THE LORD

Pope Francis: " Simeon took him in his arms and thanked God that he had finally" seen: salvation. Anna, despite her advanced age, found new vigor and began to speak to everyone about the Baby. It is a beautiful image: two young parents and two elderly people, brought together by Jesus. HE is the one who brings together and unites generations! He is the inexhaustible font of that love which overcomes every occasion of self-absorption, solitude, and sadness.

In your journey as a family, you share so many beautiful moments: meals, rest, housework, leisure, prayer, trips and pilgrimages and times of mutual support.... Nevertheless, if there is no love then there is no joy, and authentic love comes to us from Jesus. He offers us his word, which illuminates our path: he gives us the Bread of life which sustains us on our journey."

Christ is "the light to enlighten

the Gentiles and give glory to Israel,

your people." Lk 2: 32
