Prayer to Saint Anne
With love, I come to you St. Anne.
By your virtues and holiness,
you merited from God the favour
of giving life to her who is the Treasure of all graces,
the Most Holy Virgin.
Receive me, good St. Anne,
into the number of your true clients,
for so I profess myself
and wish to remain throughout my entire life.
Obtain for me, from God,
the power to imitate those virtues
with which you are so plentifully endowed.
Help me to know and regret my sins bitterly.
Obtain for me the grace of active love for Jesus and Mary,
and resolution to fulfill the duties
of my state of life with faithfulness.
Save me from every danger that confronts me in life,
and help me at the hour of my death.
