We seek the intercession of St. Anne as we pray a nine-day novena (July 17-25) in anticipation of her feast day on July 26. St. Anne is the mother of the Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Jesus Christ, and her intercession brings us closer to Jesus and Mary.
Participate in the Novena
Glorious St. Anne, we think of you as filled with compassion for those who invoke you and with love for those who suffer. Heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present affair which I commend to you under your special protection (mention your intentions).
Deign to commend it to your daughter, our Blessed Lady and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy conclusion. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face. With you and Mary and all the saints, may I praise and bless Him for all eternity. Amen. Good St Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray for me.
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory Be…
V. Good St. Anne.
R. Pray for us.
