Communion experience. In Luke 2, we read that it had been revealed to Simeon, a righteous and devout man, that he should not see death before he had seen the Messiah of the the Lord. He came in the Spirit into the temple; and when Joseph and Mary brought in the child Jesus to present him to the Lord, he took him into his arms and blessed God, saying: "Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace, according to your word, for my eyes have seen your salvation . . . ." After receiving Christ in the Holy Eucharist, I felt as St. Simeon did after seeing Jesus.
