Today is the Memorial of St. An and Joachim. The ProtoEvangelium of James tells us Mary’s parents names. Thus, they are the grandparents of Jesus. We know they must have been good people by how their daughter lived her life. So, today, we ask God’s blessing on all grandparents. Follow the example of Ann and Joachim.

  2. Today, so many of us grandparents see children and grandchildren leave the practice of the faith that they were brought up in. We need the intercession of Joachim and Ann for their return to the one true faith.
    St. Joachim and St. Ann pray for us.
