Holy/Saint Simeon and Saint Anna the Prophetess could very well be considered to have been mystics and contemplatives.  The Bible tells us that they were both very devout, that the Holy Spirit was with Simeon, and that Anna spent all of her time praying in the Temple.  These special Bible Saints sort of had one foot in the Old Testament and the other foot in the New Testament.  They lived their lives as faithful Jews, but as two elderly people, had the privilege of seeing Christ as a baby. 

Luke 2:22-38

Feast Day of Holy Simeon and Anna the Prophetess:  February 3
