Evangelio del Día!

Lectura del santo evangelio según san Lucas (2,22-35):


Cuando llegó el tiempo de la purificación, según la ley de Moisés, los padres de Jesús lo llevaron a Jerusalén, para presentarlo al Señor, de acuerdo con lo escrito en la ley del Señor: Todo primogénito varón será consagrado al Señor, y para entregar la oblación, corno dice la ley del Señor: un par de tórtolas o dos pichones. Vivía entonces en Jerusalén un hombre llamado Simeón, hombre justo y piadoso, que aguardaba el consuelo de Israel; y el Espíritu Santo moraba en él. Había recibido un oráculo del Espíritu Santo: que no vería la muerte antes de ver al Mesías del Señor. Impulsado por el Espíritu, fue al templo.

Cuando entraban con el niño Jesús sus padres para cumplir con él lo previsto por la ley, Simeón lo tomó en brazos y bendijo a Dios diciendo: Ahora, Señor, según tu promesa, puedes dejar a tu siervo irse en paz. Porque mis ojos han visto a tu Salvador, a quien has presentado ante todos los pueblos: luz para alumbrar a las naciones y gloria de tu pueblo Israel.

Su padre y su madre estaban admirados por lo que se decía del niño.

Simeón los bendijo, diciendo a María su madre: Mira, éste está puesto para que muchos en Israel caigan y se levanten; será como una bandera discutida: así quedará clara la actitud de muchos corazones. Y a ti, una espada te traspasará el alma.

Palabra de Dios.


A reading from the holy gospel according to saint Luke (2,22-35)

And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every male who first opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”) and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the Law of the Lord, “a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the Law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said, “Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.” And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him. And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), so that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.”
