St. Luke writes, Chapter 2 [23-39].

First Point. First: They bring the Child Jesus to the Temple, that He may be presented to the Lord as first-born; and they offer for Him “a pair of turtle doves or two young pigeons.”

Second Point. Second: Simeon coming to the Temple “took Him into his arms” saying: “‘Now Thou dost dismiss Thy servant, O Lord, in peace!’”

Third Point. Third: Anna “coming afterwards confessed to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all that were hoping for the redemption of Israel.”
