Saint Anne, Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Saint Anne

The Education of the Virgin, with Saint Joachim, Saint Anne, and the Blessed Virgin Mary, by Peter Paul Rubens (1577—1640)

O Lord God, who in the deep counsels of thy mercy didst entrust to Saint Anne the preparation of the Blessed Virgin for her most holy calling: Bestow upon all mothers such godliness and grace as shall draw their children unto pure and virtuous living; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty God, who didst confer such grace on Saint Anne that of her should be born the mother of thine only–begotten Son: Purify and illuminate all whom thou hast made parents, that they may bring up their children in the knowledge of thy truth, and dwell with them in honour and love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
