Dear St. Ann,
You were truly twice blessed
To have our blessed Mother
As your daughter
As your grandson.
I know that every period
Of our lives
Has its responsibilities
As well as its joys.
Today, it seems

Use or too much;
Either we are shunted aside
To do nothing,
Or we are called upon
To do everything.
Help me to know
Just where my duties lie
In my particular situation
And to carry them out as best I can.
Take care of my family,
My children, and their children.
Inspire them all
To follow your Grandson
And lead truly Christian
Keep all of us
In your loving care,
Never let us turn away from Jesus,
And help us in the end
To receive the joy
Of entering into your Grandsons'
Glorious presence forever.
Good St. Ann pray for us grandparents.

Keep me from slipping back
for I know that what ... continue reading
