Nunc Dimittis

I am seeing more and more things in the light of the Eucharist. For example, Nunc dimittis, which after praying every night for some time, I see as Eucharistic. We have seen God made man in the Eucharist. He gives himself to us in the Eucharist. What more do we need. He, in the Eucharist is the light to Israel and all mankind.

Lord, now dost thou let thy servant go in peace, according to thy word; 
for my own eyes have seen that saving power of thine 
which thou hast prepared in the sight of all nations. 
This is the light which shall give revelation to the Gentiles,
this is the glory of thy people Israel.  (Luke 2:29-33)

Oremus pro invicem!
