Prayer to St. Anne and St. Joachim
Dear Saint Anne and Saint Joachim, parents of
Blessed Virgin Mary, and grandparents of Jesus, our Divine Savior, have
pity on thy loving and trusting client, and listen to the petition
which I present before thee.
Oh, blessed Saints, thou art both most dear to the Heart of Jesus,
Whose beloved Mother was thy own tender, devoted child! Can He refuse
anything to thee, in whose veins the same blood flowed which afterwards
furnished the precious price of our Redemption? Great Saints, nothing
was impossible to thy power and influence over the young Jesus "Who
grew and waxed strong, full of wisdom" under the maternal care of thy
glorious Daughter, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. In mercy and
compassion, be like unto Him "Who went about doing good," and come to
the aid of thy servant in my great necessity!
Saint Anne, Saint Joachim, beloved parents of Mary, "our life, our
sweetness and our hope," pray to her for me and obtain my request. Amen.
