Sts. Joachim and Anne Comments

By tradition Joachim and Anne are considered to be the names of the parents of Mary, the Mother of God. We have no historical evidence, however, of any elements of their lives, including their names. Any stories about Mary's father and mother come to us through legend and tradition. We get the oldest story from a document called the Gospel of James, though in no way should this document be trusted to be factual, historical, or the Word of ... Continue Reading

    St. Anne and Joachim, grandparents of Jesus, I love you and wish your intercession for my life as a grandmother. I desire to follow your example, for what we know is the way you raised Mary. Mother Mary treasured God' presence in her life, She journeyed with Jesus on His passion of the Cross. She stood at the foot of the cross when Jesus surrendered His life. Dear grandparents of Jesus, pray for us to be good examples to our grandchildren, to give them time more than presents. To teach them prayers. Amen.

    how amazingly priviledged am i to be even considering posting this comment about the parents of the blessed virgin mary . i am not familar wit a computer but it has given me the opportunity to google the question about marys parents . bless my beautiful wife jan , my children grand children and their spouses .my faith gathers my intrigue as to the question of saints anne and joachim and now i know . iwill always be able pray to ane and joachim now with confidence and the most unbelievable answer to all of this curiousness is that jesus christ the most blessed lord on high placed all of these glorious situations long before time began to save us sinners ....... all just to die on the cross so we can be with him forever in heaven. alllleluiah bernie

    I am a parent of a deployed soldier. My son, wife and 2 boys have experienced alot of hardships in the past 6 months. I am the soldiers mom and I have been unemployeed for almost 2 yrs so I haven't been able to do much to help since I am losing my house. I have tried to get several organizations to "adopt" the family but have been turned away. I have had several people say they would help just to have them fail to follow through. All I wanted was to get the boys bikes and maybe a few other gifts. I even pleeded with people to donate a $10 or $20 gift card to Wal-Mart to use to buy gifts but no one would even give $5. This is a soldier who is defending our country and is worried about getting gifts for his family but can't. I wish I could let him know not to worry because some kind and caring people made his wishes come true. I know it is late in the season, but is there anyone who still wishes to help. Whatever you can do would be greatly appreciated so very much. God bless you for giving to those who have nothing. Thank You Sue

    I once wrote a note to the sainte-ann-de-beaupres magazine in which I told them that we should always keep saint Joachim and saint Ann together -- like God : we should never separate what God has joined together... making them, in fact, the supreme models for those who come together spiritually and physically in view of having a child. Saint Joachim and saint Ann are no doubt both equal in holiness : the Church of Rome always mentions Joachim first.

    Saint Anne is a very loving person as you can see in the story of saint anne and Mary those people are very similar. St Annes dedication to the church to god and to us is incredible.
