The Fourth Joyful Mystery: The Presentation in the Temple

A Reflection from Dan Allen, Parishioner

The following is the thirteenth of twenty monthly reflections about the Mysteries of the Rosary as they relate to family life.  The mysteries will not be necessarily chronological but presented as they interact with the liturgical year.  For previous installments, click here.

Reflection When a baby is born, there are various presentations that take place.  One of my favorites as a father has been presenting my newborn children to their mother Stephanie for the first time.  She has, after all, been doing all the work!  But when I have placed our babies cheek to cheek with their mother, any difficulty has been momentarily forgotten, and I have had one of the rare chances in life to witness pure, uninterrupted joy.  However, the presentation I most closely associate with this month's rosary mystery is when my wife and I have brought our children to baptism.  Like Joseph and Mary, we have fulfilled a hope and expectation of the religious heritage we wish to pass along as a precious gift to our children.  Whenever we have done so, my mind has inevitably drifted to my children's and my future as well.  How will we shape them to be holy people?  Will we be as proud to present them to God in eternal life as we were on their baptismal day?  And finally, am I directing my own life in a way that others would happily present on the day of salvation?

Living our Faith at Home

We unfortunately can spend a great deal of time finding fault and tearing down our loved ones. This month, spend some time building each other up. Find a moment to sit together and discuss what you most admire about each other, or if temperaments, schedules, or distance make that difficult, consider writing letters to one another instead.  To help one another stay focused on important things, we need to discuss them and encourage one another regularly.
Did you know....

Simeon and Anna were both in their final earthly years as they waited for Jesus in the Temple.

Simeon's prayer that day, known as the Canticle of Simeon, is still prayed as part of the Church's nighttime prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours. To pray it yourself, read Luke 2:29-32.
