Saints Joachim and Anne,
Pray for us
Even though there is nothing in the scriptures about Saints Joachim and Ann, their holiness is inferred through Mary, a strong character, a prayerful person with religious devotion. Family love for Jesus and Joseph indicates a loving family of her own. How often do we say that children reflect their parents?
Mary’s parents whose feast we celebrate today, represent all those who live their faith day by day and establish an atmosphere for the coming of Christ into our world.
