Sts. Joachim and Anne Comments

By tradition Joachim and Anne are considered to be the names of the parents of Mary, the Mother of God. We have no historical evidence, however, of any elements of their lives, including their names. Any stories about Mary's father and mother come to us through legend and tradition. We get the oldest story from a document called the Gospel of James, though in no way should this document be trusted to be factual, historical, or the Word of ... Continue Reading

    how appropriate that today is the feast of Stl. Anne. My daughter at this moment is in labor and in the hospital waiting to give birth to her baby boy. Please St ann and St. Gerard, watch over her, she is a good woman who waited a long time to have her first baby, I ask this in Gods name.

    Both were wealthy and God fearing couple but lamented for childlessness, sterility and barrenness. God listened to their prayers and promised a child. Anne named her daughter 'Mary". So they are the Grant parents of Jesus my Redeemer.Pray for us..

    My mother Ann, passed away on February 25, 2011.
    She told my dad before they were married that she would like to adopt a child at some point in their lives. Well they had 3 children of their own, and then my mom told my dad it was time to adopt. Well that's how they got me! I believe that my mom gave me my life just like St. Anne gave Mary hers. She told my dad that St. Anne had been so good to her all her life that she wanted to adopt because of her.
    Thank you mom for my life.
    No one will ever know. Never say good bye.
    I will pray for people who are trying to adopt to St. Anne.
    God Bless

    Prayer to St. Anne:
    Glorious and holy St. Anne, whom the Heavens admire, whom the Saints honor, and the earth reveres. The just, the penitent, and the sinner consider you as their powerful advocate before God, for by your intercession the just hope for an increase of grace, the penitent for their justification, the sinners for the remission of their sins. Be, then, kind and generous to me. Pray for me in Heaven. Use in my favor the great influence you have before God, particularly for (here make your request). Obtain my request and grant that I may live always close to God.
    Good St. Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray to her for me and obtain my request. OUR FATHER, HAIL MARY, GLORY BE

    St. Anne is also the patron of unborn children.

    St Joachim and Anne has been a role modern to my christian inspiration. How? The holy spirit have review more behinde their name to me, the genesis of their given birth to our blessed mother (Mary) which draw me closer to attach my faith to believe that am a christian and fighting to measure-up to a standard in being wordlie in the face of my saviour, redeem and creator.

    St. Anne is a very powerful intercessor. Pray a novena prayer to St. Anne to obtain a special favor. She has answered my prayers.
