Novena to St. Anne (17 July – 25 July)

Novena to St. Anne

Say once a day for 9 days, especially beginning on 17 July and ending on 25 July, the eve of the Feast of St. Anne.


O glorious St. Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke thee and with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at thy feet and humbly beg of thee to take under thy special protection the present affair which I commend to thee.

{Mention your intentions here)

Be pleased to commend it to thy daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy outcome. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face, and, with thee and Mary and all the Saints, of praising and blessing Him for all eternity. Amen.

Good St. Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray to her for us and obtain our request.

Prayer to Saint Anne, Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary

WITH A HEART FULL of sincere and filial veneration, I prostrate myself before thee, O blessed Saint Anne. Thou art that beloved and privileged creature, who, because of thy extraordinary virtue and sanctity didst merit from God the high favor of giving life to her who is the Treasury of all graces, the Blessed among women, the Mother of the Word Incarnate, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Ah: in consideration of so lofty a privilege, please, O most tender Saint, receive me into the number of thy truly devoted servants, for such I profess myself to be and desire to remain for the rest of my life. Shield me with thy efficacious patronage and obtain for me from God the power to imitate those virtues with which thou wert so plentifully adorned. Obtain for me a knowledge of my sins and sorrow for them, an ardent love for Jesus and Mary, and a faithful and constant observance of the duties of my state of life. Save me from every danger that confronts me in life, and assist me at the hour of death, that I may safely reach paradise, there to sing with thee, O most happy mother, the praises of the Word of God made Man in the womb of thy most pure daughter, the Virgin Mary. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be
