About Saint Anne

Saint Anne is venerated by the Church as the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Jesus Christ. Married to Saint Joachim, ggSaint Anne has been honored from early Christian times. Tradition, grounded in very old testimonies, says St. Joachim and Anne in their old age came from Galilee to settle in Jerusalem, where Mary was born and raised. St. Anne’s name comes from the Hebrew name Hannah, which means “grace.” St. Anne’s feast is celebrated on July 26.

Prayer to St. Anne

Glorious St. Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you and
with love for those who suffer,
heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and
humbly beg of you to take the present
affair which I recommend to you under your special protection.

Vouchsafe to recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and
lay it before the throne of Jesus, so the He may bring it to a happy issue.

Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted.
(Here ask for favor you wish to obtain.)

Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day
beholding my God face to face, and with You and Mary and all the saints,
praising and blessing Him through all eternity.  Amen.
Good St. Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope,
pray to her for us and obtain our request.  (Three times.)

I’m posting this for a very special request
