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.

    I will be adopting St Anne as my own Saint... I have no children, but have faith that through the prayers of St Anne, the Lord will give us our own child.
    My mother is also called Anna.
    If I am given a daughter, I will name this child Anna or Anne.

    Sts. Anne and Joachim, even if those aren't your real names, thank you for being such great parents to The Mother of God, if you hadn't been, Mary might not have believed what the angel told her.

    Saint Joachim, Saint Anne pray for us all; pray the distance between thy earthly bones be blessed, and all Earth's circumferences; pray all thy Sainted ancestors, from Adam to Abraham, Eve to Sarah and on to thee, rejoice in peaceful realms of joy; pray all the intervening prophets Enoch to Ezekiel, David, Daniel, Isaiah, Jeremiah to Jesus of Sirach, and Ruth, Esther, Hannah and Judith, and may all who shout God's ecstatic Words rise us each to holy realms of righteous sanctity; pray that comfortable realm your grandson Jesus preached becomes as our new Jerusalem realm of Earth and our holy gem clad golden shining Bridal City Way, for good All, we ask in Yahweh's Name and Jesus's, Mary's and Joseph's, Apostles, Disciples, Elders and every Sainted thought, Amen Father, let this Sabbath morning incense smokes rise prayers to honor these Thy good persons, to day in Paradise toward ever and every good greater One, Selah
