Pray to Jesus' grandparents for strength and courage in your life.
Grandparents are beautiful gifts to any family, and their presence is a blessing to both their children and their grandchildren.
Sts. Joachim and Anne, the parents of Mary and the grandparents of Jesus, are perfect exmaples for us and powerful intercessors.
Below is the prayer for the feast of Sts. Joachim and Anne, asking their intercession, that we may be drawn closer to God.
O Lord, God of our Fathers, who bestowed on Saints Joachim and Anne this grace,
that of them should be born the Mother of your incarnate Son,
grant, through the prayers of both,
that we may attain the salvation you have promised to your people.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
