Fourth Day of Thanksgiving Novena to St Anne

Today we saw the Holy Father under the most incredible circumstances just an hour before he flew out of Sydney, only a meter & a half away, looking at us all and I believe in my heart of hearts it is thanks to St Anne, I'll share the story when we get back.

St. Anne Novena Prayer

Glorious St. Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you, with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I kneel at your feet and humbly beg you to take my present need under your special protection. Request Vouchsafe to recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus. ease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace to one day meet God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the angels and saints praising Him through all eternity. Amen.

DAY FOUR

Glorious Saint Anne, I kneel in confidence at your feet, for you also have tasted the bitterness and sorrow of life. My necessities, the cause of my tears, are request. Good Saint Anne, you who did suffer much during the twenty years that precede your glorious maternity, I beseech you, by all your sufferings and humiliations, to grant my prayer. I pray to you, through your love for your glorious spouse Saint Joachim, through your love for your immaculate child, through the joy you did feel at the moment of her happy birth, not to refuse me. Bless me, bless my family and all who are dear to me, so that some day we may all be with you in the glory of Heaven, for all eternity. Amen.

Pray 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be....
Pray for us, Saint Anne.That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ
.


Just a daily reminder for those who may not seen the St Anne Chaplet, I wish to give-away for St Anne's feast (26th of July.)
