The righteous and Saint Simeon also announced the crucifixion of Christ, when he told the Virgin Mary that a sword would pass through her soul.

“How great is the glory of Saint and Righteous Simeon in the heavens, the one who received the Baby Jesus in his arms! It can be seen from an event in the life of Saint Peter the Atonite, which is celebrated on June 12. Being the commander of the army, Peter was taken prisoner and thrown into prison in the fortress of Samara on the banks of the Euphrates River. Suffering in prison, Peter prayed with tears to Saint Nicholas to ask God to save him from there, promising that he would give his whole life afterwards God. Saint Nicholas appeared to him in a vision and told him that although he takes his prayer to God, God does not fulfill it, because another time he made this promise with difficulty and did not keep it. then Saint Nicholas advised Peter to pray to Saint and Righteous Simeon who is very obedient before God, being close to His Throne, together with the Blessed Virgin and Saint John the Baptist.Peter obeyed and began to pray to Saint and Righteous Simeon. Then again Saint Nicholas appeared to him, together with the Righteous Simeon, but not in a vision but in reality. Peter saw Righteous Simeon in great glory, with a shining face and dressed in the priestly clothes of the Old Testament, carrying a golden staff in his hand. The righteous Simeon asked Peter: “Do you want to fulfill your promise and become a monk?” To this, Peter replied: “I will, Master, with God’s help.” Saint Simeon then touched Peter’s chains with his staff and they melted like wax. Opening the prison door, the Saint took Peter out”. (Saint Nicolae Velimirovici, “Prologues from Ohrida”, vol. I, Cartea Ortodoxa Publishing House, Egumenita Publishing House)

Holy Prophetess Ana

The prophetess Ana also rejoiced at the sight of the Child Savior. It was hypothesized that she was a cultic prophetess, in the sense that she offered sacrifices for those who were unjust and needed God’s help. In the icon of the Meeting of the Lord, the prophetess Saint Ana, daughter of Fanuel, appears, holding an open phylactery in her hand, on which is written: This child made heaven and earth. Ana served God in the temple from her youth “in fasting and in prayers” (Lk. 2, 37). She represents the faithful people who stay close to the Church and spend the night and day in fasting and prayer, a sign that waiting or meeting God is prepared through fasting and prayer.
