ST. JOACHIM AND ST. ANNE, PARENTS OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY [MEMORIA: 26 JULY]

26 Jul

Holy-Theotokos-and-Perents

An old tradition going back to the second century gives these names to the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The veneration of Saint Anne dates from the sixth century in the East and spread throughout the West in the tenth century; that of Saint Joachim is more recent.

Prayer: Lord, God of our fathers, You bestowed to Saint Joachim and and Saint Anne the singular grace that their daughter, Mary, should become the Mother of Yous Son, Jesus Christ. Grant, at their intercession, the salvation You promised to Your people. We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
