Catholic Prayer: Novena to St. Anne


This novena prayer, although short is sufficient. It would be better of course to add, if time permits, three Hail Marys or say five times the Our Father, Haily Mary and Glory be to the Father, or to use some of the many well-loved novena prayers from other sources. Remember that prayers must be said with the lips in order to gain the indulgences. This novena begins on July 17 and ends on July 26.


O Good St. Anne, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, you who are so powerful in heaven, heal us of all our bodily ills and pray for our soul's salvation. Good St. Anne, pray for us.

St. Joachim, spouse of St. Anne, and father of the Blessed Virgin, bring to your servants assistance and salvation.

300 days, once a day. Pius X, May 28, 1906.
