Novena To Sts. Anne & Joachim # 2

[The Novena consist of 9 days of prayers.]

Saints Joachim and Ann,
grandparents of Jesus and parents of Mary,
we seek your intercession.
We beg you to direct all our actions
to the greater glory of God
and the salvation of souls.
Strengthen us when we are tempted,
console us during our trials,
help us when we are in need,
be with us in life and in death.

O Divine Savior,
we thank You for having chosen saint Joachim and Ann
to be the parents of our Blessed Mother Mary
and so to be your beloved grandparents.
We place ourselves under their patronage this day.
We recommend to them our families,
our children, and our grandchildren.
Keep them from all spiritual and physical harm.
Grant that they may ever grow
in greater love of God and others.

Saints Joachim and Ann,
we have many great needs.
We beg you to intercede for us
before the throne of your Divine Grandson.
All of us here have our special intentions,
our own special needs,
and we pray that through your intercession
our prayers may be granted.

Amen.
