A Light to Enlighten the Gentiles

"Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:

For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel."

– The Canticle of Simeon.

 

My reflection on today's feast can be read here.
