Saint Hannah

Today, December 9, we commemorate the Conception by St. Anna of the Most Holy Theotokos, as well as St Hannah the Prophetess.

The connection between Anna and Hannah (same name, Greek and Hebrew forms) and Hanna and the Theotokos is obvious in some ways, but also evident in some wonderful, more subtle ways.
