Day 5 of the Petitioning Novena to St Anne


O glorious St. Anne, you are filled with compassion for those who invoke you and with love for those who suffer! Heavily burdened with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present intention which I recommend to you in your special care.

Please recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and place it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy issue. Continue to intercede for me until my request is granted. But, above all, obtain for me the grace one day to see my God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the saints to praise and bless Him for all eternity. Amen.

Our Father, . . . Hail Mary . . .

O Jesus, Holy Mary, St. Anne, help me now and at the hour of my death.
Good St. Anne, intercede for me.


Hail, all-powerful Lady. By God’s special favor, grant consolation to those who invoke you. Procure for them the eternal riches of heaven, and like a good mother, success in their temporal affairs as well.

Good St. Anne, obtain my deliverance from the punishment which my sins deserve. Obtain for me success in my temporal affairs; especially see to the salvation of my soul.

St. Anne, by your influence with Mary’s son Jesus, you have won the gift of conversion for many sinners. Will you then abandon me, who have chosen you as my mother? No, St. Anne. Your name alone, which signifies grace, assures me of the help of your prayers, and these prayers will surely procure pardon and mercy from Jesus. You will pray for me now and at the hour of my death.
A dear friend is visiting this miraculous shrine in the States where the icon above exudes myrrh/oil. Here is my blog posting about it on Day One of the Novena. She has generously stated she is happy to take any personal prayer intentions and place them at the feet of St Anne's icon on the feast day of St Anne. If you would like to have any prayers intentions taken to the shrine, please email me them and I will gladly pass them on.

I have had many ladies enter the draw this year which has been wonderful, for that reason, since I have a few more vintage reproduction St Anne medals to spare, I will be adding a couple more St Anne chaplets to the draw over the next few days. I will also be adding those new chaplets to the orginal posting so that all the chaplets can be viewed altogether in one spot.

If you haven't yet entered the draw to win one of five gemstone, heirloom quality St Anne chaplets (which you can view in detail here) please email me or leave a comment in the comment box (with your blog link or email for contact.)

"Fragrant Myrrh of St Anne" Chaplet

This St Anne chaplet has been created to compliment the beautiful, miraculous Icon of St Anne below. The colours of the Ave beads (African Jade Cross gemstones 12mm) reflect the colours in the Icon.

"Fragrant Myrrh of St Anne" Chaplet

The Pater Beads are Carved Bone beads. In you look carefully you can see the beautiful round 4mm swarvoski crystals that side the Pater beads in a deep brown that look like drops of Myrrh.
Each individual Ave bead is different in colour and pattern, so lovely...
