  Joyful Mysteries
Presentation in the Temple


When the days were completed for their purification according to the law of Moses, they took him up to

Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, just as it is written in the law of the Lord,

 "Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord," and to offer the sacrifice of

"a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons," in accordance with the dictate in the law of the Lord.  

Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. This man was righteous and devout,

awaiting the consolation of Israel, and the holy Spirit was upon him.  It had been revealed to him by

the holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Messiah of the Lord.  He came in the Spirit

into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform the custom of the law in regard to him,

he took him into his arms and blessed God, saying: "Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace,

 according to your word, for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in sight of all the peoples,

a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel."

The child's father and mother were amazed at what was said about him; and Simeon blessed them and

said to Mary his mother, "Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign

 that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts

of many hearts may be revealed." (Luke 2:22-35)

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of Your mercy.
