I also have a new look for my Tuesdays with St Anne BECAUSE she has a new home in our home! I couldn't find my camera charger until late in our afternoon, so the photo is not in the right light..I'll come back and change that tomorrow but her new home is nestled in the center of a new buffet and hutch in our lounge, she looks perfect there.
My heart is full of the wonder of this great saint at present!!! St Anne has been very good to us and I would like to share more soon, but for now I'd like to show you an image that I received in the latest Annual of St Anne magazine:
This reliquary is housed in the largest shrine to St Anne in the world ~ St Anne de Beaupre in Canada. I think that the marble images to each side show why the shrine came into being, Breton (French) sailors were in peril on the St Lawrence river and begged St Anne to save them, in return, they would build a shrine in her honour, this was in 1620 ~ the rest they say, is history!
St Anne's feast day is really only a few months away as well. (26th July) This year I would like to make a few more St Anne chaplets to give away along with the St Anne oil and Good St Anne booklet, I have already ordered and received my St Anne chaplet medals in bronze:
It is a beautiful medal of St Anne de Auray, a famous French shrine image in her honour.
This year I would like to make a St Anne necklace set to give away as well, the medal for this set will be in bronze, this is what it looks like, and it is lovely and big!
