Novena To St Anne (Patroness of Mothers)

by Micheline (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia)

Glorious saint Anne, I desire to honour you with a special devotion. I choose you, after the Blessed Virgin, as my spiritual mother and protectress. To you I entrust my soul and body, all my spiritual and temporal interest, as well as those of my family. Good saint Anne, filled with love for those who invoke you and with compassion for those who suffer. I confidently place before you my earnest petition

Pray for a special child with special needs 5 year old Madeline Raynold Mojilip, who has not been well since she was born. We ask the Lord to look down on her and her physical condition. Have mercy on Madeline and help the professionals rid her body of her sickness, make her strong and well. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

I beg you to recommend my petition to your daughter, the blessed Virgin Mary, that both Mary and you may present it to Jesus. Through your earnest prayers may my request be granted. But if what I ask for should not be according to the Will of God, obtain for me that which will be for the greater benefit of my soul.

After having loved and honoured you on earth as a truly devoted child, may I, through your prayers, have the privilege of loving and honouring you in heaven with the Angels and the Saints throughout eternity.

Good saint Anne, mother of Mary who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray to her for me and obtain my request. Amen.
