A lesson from Simeon and Anna

What a precious thing life is!  What a great destiny is offered us!  Our difficulty in realizing it stems in great part from the mad pace we go in this our age.  Few of us do any real reflecting, real thinking, real praying.

The Presentation of Christ in the Temple reminds us that without vision man will perish and disintegrate.  And vision derives from wisdom, and wisdom from reflection.
