Saints Joachim and Ann, Patrons of Generosity to Life
"Blessed are your eyes, for they see.
And blessed are your ears for they hear."
Saints Joachim and Ann, elderly parents of Mary the Mother of our Savior and heavenly patrons of generosity to new life, pray for us. May all open their eyes and ears to see and hear Jesus Christ teaching in His Church, especially in regard to the holy embrace of husband and wife, called to be radically open always to new life. Amen.
