Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
This Sunday’s Gospel reading contains a hymn many people pray before going to bed at night, the Canticle of Simeon.
“Now, Lord, you may let your servant go in peace,
according to your word,
for my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and glory for your people Israel.” (Luke 2:29-32)
