Please, join me and thousands of others in praying the novena to St. Anne. This novena begins July 17th and ends on July 26th, the feast day of St. Anne.
St. Anne is the patron saint of mothers, women in labor, and miners. Medieval tradition equated the offspring of St. Anne’s womb (Mary & Jesus) to precious metals of silver and gold. St. Anne’s womb was the mine that generated those treasures which is a rather beautiful and thought provoking image. With St. Joachim, St. Anne raised the Blessed Virgin Mary. Over the centuries, many women who prayed this novena in the hopes of meeting their future husband experienced answered prayers. With that in-mind, I’m including a special person in my intentions.
St. Anne, please, pray for good and godly spouses and marriages.
St Anne, pray for us!
St. Anne, pray for our spouses!
St. Anne, pray for our children!
