Happy Saint Anne's Feast Day!

The tea roses on the kitchen porch bloomed in time to adorn the beloved statue in honor of the great saint, patron saint of mothers--and to me, patron saint also of homeschooling, as she is usually portrayed teaching the Blessed Mother. My dear aunt gave me this unique statue and it sits on the piano in our dining room.

Saint Anne is a most powerful intercessor and here is a simple, beautiful prayer:

Good St. Anne, you were especially favored by God to be the mother of the most holy Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Savior. By your power with your most pure daughter and with her divine Son, kindly obtain for us the grace and the favor we now seek. Please secure for us also forgiveness of our past sins, the strength to perform faithfully our daily duties and the help we need to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary. Amen.
