O Good Saint Anne, I come to you with confidence, / since you are the mother of Mary and the grandmother of Jesus. / You are powerful and kind.
You are close to me and to all of us. / You help all those who pray to you. / Your sole desire is to lead us to Jesus, / to obtain from Him all the graces we need in order to follow Him with joy and peace.
I entrust to your care all my intentions, all my needs. / Help me open my heart to the graces of the Holy Spirit.
Protect the Church, our parishes and our Church leaders. / Take care of our families and those who are sick. / We commend to you all those who are dear to us, especially our children and grandchildren.
O Good Saint Anne / through your intercession help us bear witness to Jesus by our Christian life. / May we proclaim His message of hope and love. / Amen.
Glorious Saint Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you / and with love for those who suffer, / burdened with the weight of my troubles / I kneel before you and humbly beg you to take the present petition I bring to you / under your maternal protection. / Ask your daughter Mary to intercede for me / and to bring my petition to the feet of Jesus / so that He may answer my request. Keep interceding for me until my request is granted.
(Ask for your favors in silence)
Above all / obtain for me the grace / of one day seeing my God face to face / and praising Him with you and Mary and all the saints, through all eternity. / Amen.
Good Saint Anne, / mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, / pray to her for us and obtain our request.
(Repeat three times)
Pray for us Saint Anne…
Who have given life to the Immaculate Mother of God.
O God, who granted Saint Anne the grace to become the mother of her who gave birth to your only Son; grant that we, who keep her in remembrance, may obtain her protection. Through Christ, our Lord… Amen.
Saint Anne, Bless My Family
I entrust my family to you, Good Saint Anne. / Keep a careful eye on them and guard them against all physical and spiritual danger. /
My family is where my life develops; / it is my vital setting; made up of the persons I love most in the world. / My family is the small community where I live through a succession of joys and pains. / It is, as it were, my home church. /
I know that the model of all families must be found in the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. / You yourself, Saint Anne, with your husband Joachim and your daughter, the Virgin Mary, gave the example of an ideal family. / Help my family be as closely united as yours and that of Jesus. / Make us love and help one another as you did. /
Saint Anne, you were a spouse, a mother and a grandmother. / Bless all the members of my family. / Keep them united and always faithful to the Lord. /
Help all Christian families become a living example of love and peace to people they meet. / May they proclaim Christ and His Gospel by word and charity. /
Thanks to your intercession, / may the whole family of the children of God, the Church, remain faithful to Jesus. / Amen.
