Our Patron Saints / Laochra an Chreidimh No. 89. Saint Anne. The name Anne derives from the Hebrew word Hannah meaning grace. Tradition refers to St. Anne as being the mother of the Virgin Mary. St. Anne was born in Bethlehem and married Joachim from Nazareth in Galilee. Joachim was a shepherd given the task of supplying the temple of Jerusalem with sheep for sacrifices.
Tradition holds that after twenty years of marriage Anne and Joachim had no children. Once when Joachim overheard ridicule because of their childless state, he is said to have gone into the desert to plead with God to give them a child. After a time of fasting an angel appeared to assure Joachim he and Anne would be given a child. They were to name her Mary.
In the meantime St. Anne wondered where her husband had gone and in her despair at having been barren she prayed while she watched newborn birds in their nests in her garden. She cried out, “why was I born, Lord?” That is when an angel appeared to tell her she would soon give birth to a daughter she was to name Mary. The story continues with Anne and Joachim’s joyous reunion at the golden gate of Jerusalem. After the birth Anne and Joachim dedicated Mary to God at the temple of Jerusalem and she spent much of her childhood there. When Mary was fourteen they betrothed her to Joseph of Nazareth and Mary’s story continues with the birth of her son, Jesus, and His life on earth.
The life of St. Anne and her connection as the holy mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus was very popular to early Christians. In the year 550 a church was built in honour of where St. Anne, Joachim and Mary lived. St. Anne’s feast day is on July 26th. St. Anne, patron saint of mothers and women in labour and minors, is symbolized by Mary on her lap holding the infant Jesus. I chose St. Anne because both my great grandmother and my aunt’s name is Anne.

Mother’s Day 2014
Prayer for Mothers
Dear Lord, we who are mothers need your help.
You have placed in us the care of each other and of our children.
Give us the strength and patience to cope with the many ups and downs of family life.
Grant us the grace to be deeply thankful for its many laughs, joys and blessings.
Let our children come to know of your love through our love for them.
Help us as we try to make ours a home where love dwells, a home like that of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Nazareth.
When we fail each other and when we hurt each other, soften our hearts so that forgiveness and reconciliation come quickly and easily.
Protect this family, Lord, and let it flourish
in your light and in your love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Family Prayer
We give you thanks Lord God,
Who has blessed us with life and love.
You have given us the gift of the family.
Help us to nurture and protect,
to guide and to love each other.
Through the intercession of the Holy Family,
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, protect us.
Give us wisdom and courage,
Joy and faithfulness in responding to our
Special vocation as a Christian family,
So that we may help each other to grow in grace
And love to the Glory of God. Amen.
