FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF JESUS IN THE TEMPLE

FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF JESUS IN THE TEMPLE
Heb 2:14-18 , Luke 2:22-40
BY : RD. JOSEP GULTOM

" My eyes have seen the salvation which comes from you .. "
Dear brothers and sisters ,
Attract attention to the figures mentioned in the gospel this time . There Joseph and Mary , Jesus' father and mother ; exist Simeon ; Anna and of Jesus himself as a small child , who do not know anything . His parents , Joseph and Mary took Jesus to the Temple for purification according to the law of Moses . In the law of Moses says that all first-born sons to be offered to God . This means that every firstborn male , either animal or human is God's. And instead, they must be redeemed by presenting a pair of pigeons . Dove is the symbol of chastity and purity and peace .
In this story of faith and humility seem Joseph and Mary . We certainly remember the events surrounding Jesus' birth passage , was presented to them that " their son " was not a " regular kid " , but from God himself . However, they do not feel have special privileges . Mary did not react too much when Simeon said to him : " a sword will pierce your heart " . With the innocence they follow what is commonly done . Also they do not want to be wondering what the child later , but caring , enlarged , and educate " their children " so that " the child grew up, filled with wisdom and the grace of God was upon it " .
The next figure is Simeon . He said as a true gentleman , devout , awaiting the consolation of Israel , and the Holy Spirit and there it . He would not die before seeing Christ Jesus . We can imagine , after waiting for many years , he must be so happy when he was finally able to meet Jesus . Simeon hidupp feel the fullness of existence. With the meet " the salvation " , it is enough for him . Through hymns , Simeon reveals Jesus' true identity . Jesus is the salvation of God , which has been prepared for all mankind , a light to all nations , and the glory of God's people .
Next is Hanna ( Anna ) . He said as a female prophet , is very old and has never left the temple . His life was dedicated to serving God night and day, fasting and praying . He also finally be able to see the baby , the salvation of God .
Reflecting on the characters and story in today's Gospel , I reflect on two things , among others :
1 . Every human being is God's. Because it's basically every human life must be dedicated to God . The Apostle Paul tells us that we are children of God , because it is our lives should reflect the lives of God's children . Let wondered , our struggle setiaphari leads where? Is there a hint in our hearts that when doing a job , in fact we offer it to God . Certainly do not need to like Simeon and Anna , who lives every day in the Temple with prayer and fasting . But let our work leads to a reflection of the glory of God . Joseph and Mary is a concrete example . They live a simple life as husband - wife , bringing up " children " of their Jesus with love and faith . In the legends say that Yosef to his work as a carpenter , and ' maybe ' Mary as an ordinary housewife . Actual job as a carpenter at the time it was not classified as poor , but including the middle class . But one thing they direct care to the "voice of God " , either by a specific person or through certain events . In the Gospel it is said that " the child 's increasingly large and there it divine wisdom " . Jesus , that is , to become like that of course is the result of upbringing Joseph and Mary , and we do not think so just as miraculous .
2 . See and do with safety . In this life we see many things . Of course there is still a desire to see more. But both also we wondered what we most want to see . Simeon very long to see that salvation comes from God and it is already making him feel fulfilled life in the world . Hanna was a very long wait for a chance to pray and fast . Satisfaction is the satisfaction of human wholeness . Want to see what our deepest longing ? Do we want to see it is a safety or lead to destruction ?
Dear brothers and sisters ,
Francis Pope always reminds us that we are pilgrims who were walking towards God . This sentence is very meaningful indeed . Pope would like to remind the true nature of humanity , which goes towards God . Walk towards God necessarily means following the right path to God . Do not get lost . It also means that each steer , when others take the wrong path in order to be reminded to return to the right path . This is life dedicated to God . Jesus presented in the Temple and go back in Nazareth . His life was later dedicated to the safety and salvation itself . We also have dedicated when baptized , and returned Nazareth the real world everyday .
When a walk to several churches , especially to the basilica of St. Peter's , I was very impressed with the variety of very beautiful paintings there . Even more impressive is until now I knew there was a modern painter can make paintings that match the painting. It seems no exaggeration to say that the artist is truly blessed when he wants hasilkaryanya dedicate themselves to God . When he directed himself to God , the Holy Spirit fell upon it as the self- Simeon . The paintings that are a symbol of surrender to God 's own painter .
The dear brothers , let us dedicate the beautiful paintings of this life to God as a form of surrender ourselves . Amen ....
