Novena to Saint Anne July 17-25

O Glorious St. Anne,
who is filled with compassion for those who invoke thee and with love for those who suffer,
heavily laden with the weight of my troubles,
I cast myself at thy feet and humbly beg of thee to take under thy special protection
the present affair which I recommend to thee. (state your petition)

Deign to commend it to thy daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary,
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,
and with thee and Mary and all the Saints,
of praising and blessing Him for all eternity. read more
