Prayer before a Picture or Statue of Saint Anne

Dearest St. Anne,

it is you I wish to honour

in your statues and images.

They are the tangible representations

of the mysteries of divine love

that were accomplished in you.

The sight of your holding the infant Virgin Mary

brings to my mind a clearer understanding

of your role in Christ's Redemption of mankind.

You are the woman whom God the Father

called to prepare a Mother for His Only Begotten Son.

This little Virgin in your arm

will soon grow to be the mother of the Son of God.

Because you are her Mother,

you share in her privileges.

The amazing mystery of the Immaculate Conception

was accomplished within your body.

When time came, you gave birth to Mary.

Then, you prepared her for the dazzling role

of Mother of God which was to be hers.

Saint Anne,

the reason for your holiness

is your closeness to God.

You are the privileged one

who has been chosen to be the mother of the Mother of God.

Dearest Saint Anne,

pray for me and for all my fellowmen.

have speical prayers and blessings

for the sick and affliced,

for the hungry and needy.

Obtain for all men the priceless gift

of mutual love in God and for peace.

Amen.
