St. Anne and St. Joachim Pray For Us!

Today is the Memorial of St. Anne and St. Joachim, parents of Our Blessed Mother and grandparents to Jesus.

Recently on our drive back from Chicago we stopped at a parish in Erie, Pennsylvania. The Church is named after St. Stanislaus. This statue of St. Anne and Mary stood near the front of the Church. There was something so dear about how St. Anne was looking over the shoulder of Mary. She was tenderly holding her yet also pointing something out in her book. 

As St. Anne and Joachim are the Patron Saints of Grandparents I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the many grandparents who have  helped guide their children and now grandchildren in faith. Their role is a great one. We have seen this so clearly in the Children's Rosary. Many grandparents have begun groups or helped to bring their grandchildren to meetings. May I humbly say, thank you. The fruits of your prayers and efforts will have lasting effects.
