Simeon and Anna are two people seen by Luke as the earliest recognisers of Jesus. Physically they approached this family and felt the divine presence. Both react with such calm grace and beauty in that presence.
Perhaps they just happened to be in the right place at the right time, but the story suggests they lived their lives with a promise and a part of their worship were being aware of that promise.
