Saint Novenas

St. Anne Novena – St. Anne is the Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary
and a great Saint!
Although Saint Anne is not mentioned in the Bible, she is the holy
mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus. When we pray the St.
Anne Novena, we are asking help from our Blessed Mother’s
mother!
Saint Anne’s feast day is on July 26th, so the St. Anne Novena is
traditionally started on July 17th — but you can pray it anytime.
Devotion to St. Anne began early in the history of the Catholic Church. As she was
favored by God to become the mother of the holy Virgin Mary, she is often invoked as the
Patron of mothers as well as for relationships, among other things.
St. Anne, Mother of the Virgin Mary
Saint Anne was born in Bethlehem and eventually married Saint Joachim, a shepherd
from Nazareth, in Galilee.
Her name, Anne, actually derives from the Hebrew name Hannah meaning grace. There
is not a lot of literature about the life of St. Anne, but what we do know about her comes
from apocryphal literature, history and legend.
The story goes that St. Anne was married to St. Joachim for many years (some stories
report as many as twenty years) without being able to have children. After much ridicule
and sorrow because they could not conceive, both separately pleaded to God to take
away their sterility, promising that they would dedicate their child to the service of God.
Their prayers were heard.
An angel soon appeared before both of them, declaring that St. Anne would conceive and
give birth to a child who would be blessed by the entire world. That child was named
Mary, and today, she is our blessed Virgin Mother. After their daughter’s birth, St. Anne
and St. Joachim dedicated Mary to God at the temple of Jerusalem, where she spent a lot
of her childhood.

St. Anne Novena, Day One
Great Saint Anne, engrave indelibly on my heart and in my mind the words that have
reclaimed and sanctified so many sinners:
“What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world if he lose his own soul?” May this be
the principal fruit of these prayers by which I will strive to honor you during this novena.
At your feet renew my resolution to invoke you daily, not only for the success of my
temporal affairs and to be preserved from sickness and suffering, but above all, that I
may be preserved from all sin, that I may gain eternal salvation and that I will receive the
special grace of…
(State your intention here.)
O most powerful Saint Anne, do not let me lose my soul, but obtain for me the grace of
heaven, there with you, your blessed spouse, and your glorious daughter, to sing the
praise of the Most Holy and Adorable Trinity forever and ever.
Amen.
Pray for us, Saint Anne!
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
St. Anne Novena, Day Two
Glorious Saint Anne, how can you be otherwise than overflowing with tenderness toward
sinners like me, since you are the grandmother of Him who shed His blood for us, and
the mother of her whom the saints call advocate of sinners? To you, therefore, I address
my prayers with confidence.
Vouchsafe to commend me to Jesus and Mary so that, at your request, I may be granted
remission of my sins, perseverance, the love of God, charity for all mankind, and the
special grace of…
(State your intention here.)
…for which I stand in need at the present time. O most powerful protectress, let me not
lose my soul, but pray for me that through the merits of Jesus Christ and the intercession
of Mary, I may have the great happiness of seeing them, of loving and praising them with
you through all eternity.
Amen.

are dear to us under your special care. Obtain for us the virtues you instilled in the heart

(State your intention here.)
Good Saint Anne, you who did suffer much during the twenty years that preceded your
glorious maternity, I beseech you, by all your sufferings and humiliations, to grant my
prayer.
I pray to you, through your love for your glorious spouse Saint Joachim, through your love
for your immaculate child, through the joy you did feel at the moment of her happy birth,
not to refuse me. Bless me, bless my family and all who are dear to me, so that someday
we may all be with you in the glory of heaven, for all eternity.
Amen.
Pray for us, Saint Anne!
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
St. Anne Novena, Day Five
Great Saint Anne, how far I am from resembling you. I so easily give way to impatience
and discouragement; and so easily give up praying when God does not at once answer
my request. Prayer is the key to all heavenly treasures and I cannot pray, because my
weak faith and lack of confidence fail me at the slightest delay. O my powerful
protectress, come to my aid, listen to my petition…
(State your intention here.)
Make my confidence and fervor, supported by the promise of Jesus Christ, increase as
the trial to which God in His goodness subjects me is prolonged, that I may obtain like
you more than I can venture to ask for. In the future I will remember that I am made for
heaven and not for earth; for eternity and not for time; that consequently I must ask,
above all, the salvation of my soul which is assured to all who pray properly and who
persevere in prayer.
Amen.
Pray for us, Saint Anne!
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
