#GospelToday (Lk 2:36-40)
There was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanu-el, of the tribe of Asher; she was of a great age, having lived with her husband seven years from her virginity, and as a widow till she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day.
And coming up at that very hour she gave thanks to God, and spoke of him to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.
When they had performed everything according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth.
The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.
