St. Anne Novena

St. Anne PictureThis is it!

NOVENA PRAYER TO
SAINT ANNE

The first part is to be prayed daily in addition to a daily prayer to St. Anne. The most efficacious time to pray St. Anne's Novena is the 9 days before her July 25th feast day. (July 18-26)

O glorious St. Anne,

you are filled with compassion for those who invoke you
and with love for those who suffer! Heavily burdened with
the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and
humbly beg of you to take the present intention which I
recommend to you in your special care.


Please recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin
Mary, and place it before the throne of Jesus, so that He
may bring it to a happy issue. Continue to intercede for
me until my request is granted. But, above all, obtain
for me the grace one day to see my God face to face, and
with you and Mary and all the saints to praise and bless
Him for all eternity. Amen.

Our Father, . . . Hail Mary . . .

O Jesus, Holy Mary, St. Anne, help me now
and at the hour of my death.

Good St. Ann, intercede for me.


St. Anne Novena Day 1

Dear St. Anne, though I am but a prodigalchild,
I appeal to you and place myself under your great
motherly care. Please listen to my prayers and grant my
requests. See my contrite heart, and show me your
unfailing goodness.

Deign to be my advocate and recommend me
to God’s infinite mercy. Obtain for me forgiveness
of my sins and the strength to begin a new life that will
last forever.

Blessed St. Anne, I also beg of you the
grace to love, to serve, and to honor your daughter, the
most holy Virgin Mary. Please recommend me to her and
pray to her for me. She refuses none your requests but
welcomes with loving kindness all those for whom you
intercede.

Good Jesus, be merciful to the faithful
servants of Your grandmother St. Anne.

St. Anne Novena Day 2

From the depths of my heart, good St. Anne,
I offer you my homage this day and ask you to
shelter me under the mantle of your motherly care. You
know, good mother, how much I love you, how gladly I
serve you, how happy I am to praise you, how eager I am
to call on you in time of distress.

Good St. Anne, be pleased to extend your
helping hand in all my wants. Listen to my prayers, for I
place my trust in your gracious bounty. Make all my
thoughts and desires worthy and righteous.

Jesus, I thank You for all the graces
which in Your infinite goodness You have lavished upon
St. Anne; for having chosen her, among all women, to be
Your grandmother on earth and exalted her in heaven with
such great and miraculous powers. In the name of her
merits, I humbly recommend myself to Your infinite mercy.


St. Anne Novena Day 3

Hail, good St. Anne, who first responded to
the needs of Mary, Mother of our Savior and Queen of
Angels. Hail to you and to your husband St. Joachim, who
watched over her infancy, presented her to the Lord in
the temple and, according to your promise, consecrated
her to the service of God.

Hail St. Anne, good mother! I rejoice in
the marvels you continually perform, because they
encourage all to seek your intercession.

Good St. Anne, by the great power that God
has given you, show yourself my mother, my consoler, my
advocate. Reconcile me to the God I have so deeply
offended. Console me in my trials; strengthen me in my
struggles. Deliver me from danger in my time of need.
Help me at the hour of death and open to me the gates of
paradise.


St. Anne Novena Day 4

Good St. Anne, you offered your pure and
holy daughter Mary in the temple with faith, piety and
love. By the happiness which then filled your heart, I
beg you to present me to your Grandson Jesus. Offered by
you, I will be agreeable in His sight.

Kind St. Anne, take me forever under your
protection. Deliver me from the temptations which
continually assail me. Above all, attend me in my last
hour. As I lie on my deathbed, be present with your
daughter to console and strengthen me.

Holy Mary and good St. Anne, show
yourselves to be mothers indeed by obtaining for me the
grace of a good death. When my soul goes forth, lead it
to God’s tribunal so that, by your powerful help and
intercession, it may obtain a favorable judgment.


St. Anne Novena Day 5

Hail, all-powerful Lady. By God’sspecial favor,
grant consolation to those who invoke you.
Procure for them the eternal riches of heaven, and like a
good mother, success in their temporal affairs as well.

Good St. Anne, obtain my deliverance from
the punishment which my sins deserve. Obtain for me
success in my temporal affairs; especially see to the
salvation of my soul.

St. Anne, by your influence with
Mary’s son Jesus, you have won the gift of
conversion for many sinners. Will you then abandon me,
who have chosen you as my mother? No, St. Anne. Your name
alone, which signifies grace, assures me of the help of
your prayers, and these prayers will surely procure
pardon and mercy from Jesus. You will pray for me now and
at the hour of my death.


St. Anne Novena Day 5

Good St. Anne, do not allow my soul, a
masterpiece of God’s creative power, to be lost
forever. Free my heart of pride, vanity, self-love. May I
know myself as I really am and learn meekness and
simplicity of heart.

God’s great love for me leaves me
cold and unresponsive. I must reflect this love through
works of mercy and charity toward my neighbor.

In your boundless charity, good St. Anne,
help me to merit the glorious crown which is given to
those who have fought the good fight against the world,
the devil and the flesh. Assist me to preserve purity of
heart and body. With Mary and her divine Son, protect me
always.


St. Anne Novena Day 7

Once again, Good St. Anne, I choose you
for my advocate before the throne of God. By the power
and grace that God has placed in you, extend to me your
helping hand. Renew my mind and my heart.

Dear St. Anne, I have unbounded confidence
in your prayers. To your blessed hands I entrust my soul,
my body and all my hopes for this world and the next.
Direct my actions according to your goodness and wisdom.
I place myself under your motherly care.

Receive me, good mother. Cover me with
the mantle of your love. Look kindly on me. By your
powerful intercession, may I obtain from God grace and
mercy. Obtain for me remission for sin and release from
the punishment my offenses have deserved. Pray that I may
receive grace to lead a devout life on earth and that I
may obtain the everlasting reward of heaven.


St. Anne Novena Day 8

Hail, St. Anne! I rejoice at your exaltedglory.
You gave birth to Mary, whose divine Son brought
salvation to our lost world by conquering death and
restoring life and hope to sinners. Pray to Him who, for
love of us, clothed Himself with human flesh in the
chaste womb of your daughter.

Glorious St. Anne, with your blessed
daughter, deliver me from everything that is displeasing
in the sight of God. Pray to your gentle and powerful
Grandson that He may cleanse my soul in His precious
blood, that He may send His Holy Spirit to enlighten and
direct me in all that I do, always obedient to His holy
inspirations.

Good mother, keep a watchful eye on me.
Help me bear all my crosses. Give me the fullness of your
bounty and sustain me with courage.


St. Anne Novena Day 9

Good St. Anne, I have reached the end of
this novena in your honor. I have asked and ask again.
Good mother, let not your kind ear grow weary of my
prayers, though I repeat them so often.

Bounteous Lady, implore for me from
divine Providence all the help I need through life. May
your generous hand bestow on me the material means to
satisfy my own needs and to alleviate the plight of the
poor.

Good St. Anne, fortify me by the
sacraments of the Church at the hour of my death. Admit
me into the company of the blessed in the kingdom of
heaven, where I may praise and thank the adorable
Trinity, your grandson Christ Jesus, your glorious
daughter Mary, and yourself, dear St. Anne, through
endless ages.
