Habens tui ordinis, quas sequaris, Iudith de Hebraea historia et Annam, filiam Phanuelis, de euangelii claritate, quae diebus et noctibus uersabantur in temple et orationibus atque ieiuniis thesaurum pudicitae consueruabant. Unde et altera in typo ecclesiae diabolum capite truncauit, altera saluatorem mundi prima suscepit sacramentorum conscia futurorum.
You have widows like yourself worthy to be your models, Judith renowned in Hebrew story and Anna the daughter of Phanuel famous in the gospel. Both these lived day and night in the temple and preserved the treasure of their chastity by prayer and fasting. One was a type of the Church which cuts of the head of the devil, and the other first received in her arms the savior of the world and had revealed to her the holy mysteries which were to come.
