Feast Day of St. Anna the Prophetess
Anna the Prophetess, from Luke’s gospel has her feast day today. Since little is known about her other than the gospel account, let us read that today.
”There was also a prophet, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, having lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped there with fasting and prayer night and day. At that moment she came, and began to praise God and to speak about the child to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.”
St. Anna, pray for us.
