Saint Brigid – Christine Valters Paintner

January 31, 2018

“[Today is] Brigid’s feast day [which] is also connected to the Christian liturgical year, followed by the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus on February 2. . . .  Luke’s Gospel tells us that the prophet Anna and a man named Simeon immediately recognize and welcome Jesus. Taking the child into his arms, Simeon turns his voice toward God and offers praise for the ‘light for revelation’ that has come into the world. . . . As we emerge from the deep of winter, the feast reminds us of the perpetual presence of Christ our Light in every season.”
