Presentation of Christ, Waltham Abbey

Stained glass window in the Lady Chapel of Waltham Abbey parish church. This depicts the Presentation of Christ in the Temple from Luke's Gospel ch 2 vv 27-32

"Guided by the Spirit, Simeon came into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him what was customary under the law, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying,

‘Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace,

according to your word;

for my eyes have seen your salvation,

which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples,

a light for revelation to the Gentiles

and for glory to your people Israel.’"
