Rather belatedly I have updated the pages for Readers and Eucharistic Ministers. I'm sorry to have taken so long about it, but do have a look and see if it works for you.

Feast of the Presentation of our Lord

Permalink
Today is the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord, when Jesus was presented in the temple by his parents.  Today we hear the "Nunc Dimittis" by Simeon (Mass is at 0930 at St Peter's).

This prayer is in the Bible Alive © Reflections for today; it's rather beautiful and I thought it worth repeating here:

That true light which enlightens every man coming into his world, has come. Brethren, let us all be enlightened, let us all be filled with light…let us all go together bright with that light to welcome with old Simeon that everlasting shining light. Rejoicing with him in our souls, let us sing a hymn of thanks to the begetter and Father of the light, who has sent the true light and driven away the darkness and made us all to shine with light.’ 
(St Sophronius)
