Blessings on the Christ Child

Sermon on Luke 2:33-40, for the 1st Sunday after Christmas, about the blessings that aged Simeon and Anna gave to Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, at His presentation and naming in the Temple. How are age and youth portrayed positively side by side? What is the meaning of Simeon's last prophecy to Mary? What is the significance of Simeon's prophecy and its fulfillment in the life of Jesus? What particular example does Anna set for us?
