(Saint) (October 8) (1st century) “The just and devout man, waiting for the consolation of Israel,” who in the Temple took the Infant Saviour in his arms, and, inspired by the Holy Ghost, blessed God with the Nunc dimittis (Luke ii. 25-35). Tradition has preserved nothing more regarding him; but he has always had in the Church a place in her Catalogues of Saints.
