December 23. Read Luke 2:36-40.

Anna, described as a "prophetess" (Luke 2:36; Exodus 15:20; Judges 4:4), is an elderly woman long since widowed. She seems to have spent most of her life praying, fasting, and worshipping. According to this passage, she will notice the arrival of Jesus in the temple (Luke 2:22–24). Shortly after Simeon (Luke 2:25–32) praises God for sending the Messiah, Anna will echo those ideas as she tells everyone the good news (Luke 2:38).
