"Good St. Anne..."

"...send me a man." That is a prayer that an Irish lady in Lourdes told me to say to find a husband. It worked, and the rest is history. Everybody needs a Jewish grandma. There is no need too small or insignificant for St. Anne concern herself with; she is at home among the pots and pans, in the garden, the grocery store, and especially in the labor and delivery room. I can even see her standing in the living room in the middle of a family fight, trying to intervene. She is powerful with God. Her shrine in Quebec is among the most beautiful in the world.

St. Anne, Beauty of Judea, Mother of the Virgin, pray for us!

Don Marco offers a wonderful meditation in honor of Saints Anne and Joachim.
