"There was also a prophetess, Anna, the
daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she
had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, and then
was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple
but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. Coming up to them
at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the
child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of
Jerusalem" (Luke 2:36-38).
