A Light to the Gentiles

In this representation the Divine Infant tells us by an external ace, performed with infant grace, how sweetly He lead the old man Simeon into the temple by the spirit. By that same act He brings to our minds the cross, that sword of sorrow prophesied by Simeon, to pierce the heart of His Mother. The pillar behind the Infant tells of their presence in the temple, and that God was once a pillar of light to the “Children of Israel” in Egypt. This Child, too, will be a sojourner in the same land.
