DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Prophetess Anna – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Prophetess Anna’s lived in the holiness of serving in God’s Temple, and fasted and prayed day and night.  She was blessed to see the Messiah Infant Jesus, and praised God with great joy.  “Do we daily pray and live a meaningful and fulfilling life that is God-centered?

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 2:36-40

There was a prophetess, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was well on in years. Her days of girlhood over, she had been married for seven years before becoming a widow. She was now eighty-four years old and never left the Temple, serving God night and day with fasting and prayer. She came up just at that moment and began to praise God; and she spoke of the child to all who looked forward to the deliverance of Jerusalem.

When they had done everything the Law of the Lord required, they went back to Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth. Meanwhile the child grew to maturity and he was filled with wisdom; and God’s favour was with him.
