Saint Anne

St. Anne

Saint Anne, you are dear to our heart as the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus.

Your daughter grew up in the expectation of the Messiah’s coming,  and you helped her to respond generously to God’s call in her life.

You thus prepared her to accept becoming  the mother  of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Help us as well to be caring parents and grandparents, helping our children and grandchildren to discover God’s love for us and respond to it whole-heartedly.

Saint Anne, protect our families and pray for us. Amen
