Fr. Milos Vesin on the Feast of the Meeting of the Lord (source – here):
“Today is a feast of the law but also of the Lawgiver. The Lord, our Lawgiver, led by His love towards mankind and desire that he come to the knowledge of truth, Himself follows the Law, even though He had no need for it.
Today’s feast has also a social dimension, for it points to the moment when the parents brought the child before the Lord on the fortieth day. The future of the Church of Christ is not in the youth but the future of the youth is the Church. St. Simeon held the Lord in his hands one day, while we partake of the Mysteries of His body and blood and always hold him in our hearts.”
