HWP: St. Anne

Being that this Saturday is the feast of St. Ann/Anne and I'm the Pastor of St. Ann's Catholic Church, I feel compelled to offer this week's Half-Way Prayer to the mother of the Blessed Virgin, mother of the Lord Jesus. The problem is that there are so many beautiful prayers! After reading through a handful, this one seemed fitting. If you want to check out this others, you can find them HERE. So, we pause to drink of the wellspring of grace as well pray...

A Prayer to St. Anne
Good St. Anne, you were especially favored by God to be the mother of the most holy Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Savior. By your power with your most pure daughter and with her divine Son, kindly obtain for us the grace and the favor we now seek. Please secure for us also forgiveness of our past sins, the strength to perform faithfully our daily duties and the help we need to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary. Amen.
