prayer diary Tuesday 2 February 2016 (The Presentation of Christ in the Temple)

Simeon said to Mary ‘and a sword will pierce your own soul too.’ 
Luke 2. 35

Reflection
We sometimes forget the great cost in human terms of faithfulness to God. These words of St Luke remind us of the great price the Mother of God knew she would pay – her Son – and the pain that would cause her. It is obedience such as hers we must try to emulate.
