Lk. 2:22-40 Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
Several thinkers have said in many nuianced ways that the measure of society is found in the way it treats its children. Each night I see our children who have been swept aside by families, social services, and people in general-we walk by them on the street. I think of Danny who just died, on the streets since he was 15=society swept him aside, I think of the kids I saw last night--they do not meet the expectations of society--and so they are pushed aside. Anna,Mary, Joseph, Simion met Jesus where he was, opened to him--we should be opened and available to all. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
