Fun Word Friday: Nunc dimittis – A Higher Things® Video Short

Everything in the liturgy is there for a reason. It’s not just laid out willy nilly or to emotionally manipulate the audience. The placement of the Nunc Dimittis after communion signals to you that, like Simeon, you’re ready for whatever comes your way, you’re even ready to die. Forgiveness is yours, eternal life is yours, salvation is yours.
