Sts. Joachim and Anne Prayer
O Divine Savior,
we thank You for having chosen saint Joachim and Ann
to be the parents of our Blessed Mother Mary
and so to be your beloved grandparents.
We place ourselves under their patronage this day.
We recommend to them our families,
our children, and our grandchildren.
Keep them from all spiritual and physical harm.
Grant that they may ever grow
in greater love of God and others. Amen.
