Gospel - Lk 2:22-35

22And after the days of her purification, according to the law of Moses, were accomplished, they carried him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord:
23As it is written in the law of the Lord: Every male opening the womb shall be called holy to the Lord:
24And to offer a sacrifice, according as it is written in the law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons:
25And behold there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Ghost was in him.
26And he had received an answer from the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Christ of the Lord.
27And he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when his parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law,
28He also took him into his arms, and blessed God, and said:
29Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word in peace;
30Because my eyes have seen thy salvation,
31Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:
32A light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
33And his father and mother were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning him.
34And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother: Behold this child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted;
35And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed.
