The reaction of Anna (Tob 11:5-11:6)

“Meanwhile Anna sat looking intently down the road by which her son would come. When she caught sight of him coming, she said to his father.


Your son is coming!

So is the man who went with him!’”

Anna, the mother of Tobias, was in her usual position of looking down the road where Tobias had left. This time, she actually saw him with the other man. She cried out to her husband Tobit to look to make sure she was right.
