to celebrate tonight Vespers and the Divine Service for the Purification of Mary and the Presentation of Our Lord. There were only thirteen of us there (at least at Divine Service; didn't count for Vespers) and yet what overflowing joy in the gift of this Feast. We stand with Simeon in the Lord's temple, receiving the same body and blood that He held long ago, and we - like him - are prepared to depart in peace. We can die with joy for we have met and greeted, seen and tasted, Him who is death's Destruction, sin's Forgiveness.
