    This Sunday we hear Luke’s story of the ritual at which the infant Jesus is presented in the temple and his mother Mary is “purified” after childbirth. Yet receiving them in the temple are Simeon and Anna, two old people who speak about the redemption that will come through Jesus’ death. When we celebrate Jesus’ birth, we remember his death.
