Prayer Before a Picture or Statue of Saint Anne
it is you I wish to honour
in your statues and images.
They are the tangible representations
of the mysteries of divine love
that were accomplished in you.
The sight of your holding the infant Virgin Mary
brings to my mind a clearer understanding
of your role in Christ's Redemption of mankind.
You are the woman whom God the Father
called to prepare a Mother for His Only Begotten Son.
This little Virgin in your arm
will soon grow to be the mother of the Son of God.
Because you are her Mother,
you share in her privileges.
The amazing mystery of the Immaculate Conception
was accomplished within your body.
When time came, you gave birth to Mary.
Then, you prepared her for the dazzling role
of Mother of God which was to be hers.
the reason for your holiness
is your closeness to God.
You are the privileged one
who has been chosen to be the mother of the Mother of God.
Dearest Saint Anne,
pray for me and for all my fellowmen.
have special prayers and blessings
for the sick and affliced,
for the hungry and needy.
Obtain for all men the priceless gift
of mutual love in God and for peace.
