Liturgical Day: The First Sunday of Christmas; Year B
faithful saints in the Temple
attentive to God
Today we hear the story of Simeon and Anna — two Saints of God who spend their lives in the Temple, worshipping, fasting and praying. They are among the few who recognized Jesus for who he is: the promised Messiah. Their faithfulness, and awareness of the ways of God, invite us to become more aware of what God is doing in the world today.
Some discussion Questions:
1. What causes Simeon and Anna to recognize who Jesus actually is?
2. How might I become more intentional about studying the ways of God, and growing in faith?
3. Where is God involved in my world today?
