Tuesday. [Jude 1:1–10; Luke 22:39–42, 45–23:1] The Meeting
Lord. At this meeting the Lord is surrounded on the one side by Sim-eon — righteousness which awaits salvation, but not in righteousness itself, and Anna — a life of strict fasting and prayer, made alive by faith; and on the other side by sub-stantial, comprehensive and stead-fast purity — the Virgin Mother of God, and by humble, silent submis-sion and devotion to the will of God — Joseph the Betrothed. Transfer all of these spiritual attitudes to your heart and you will meet the Lord; not carried to you, but coming to you Himself. You will take Him into the embrace of your heart, and you will sing a hymn which will pass throughout the heavens and glad-den all the angels and saints.
Saint Theophan the Recluse
