Day 1: St. Ann Novena

Share and re-tweet, please.

17 July through 26 July, Ann’s feast day in both traditional and post-Conciliar calendars, we can pray a NOVENA to the grandmother of God, the mother of Mary.

Here is one novena prayer to St Ann.  There are others.  Pray it (or others) every day from 17 through 26 July.   You will have your own petitions as I have mine.

I ask St Ann to soften the hearts of all those who will now be involved with the implementation of Traditionis custodes  I will ask Ann to “guard the guards”.

Say this each day.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Glorious St. Anne, we think of you as filled with compassion for those who invoke you and with love for those who suffer. Heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present affair which I commend to you under your special protection

(Mention your intention here…)

Deign to commend it to your daughter, our Blessed Lady and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy conclusion. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face.  With you and Mary and all the saints, may I praise and bless Him for all eternity. Amen. Good St Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray for me.

Say 1: Our Father…
Say 1: Hail Mary…
Say 1: Glory Be…

Who will join me in this Novena?

    Joining you, Father.

  2. Josephus Corvus says:

    Thank you Father. Please post the daily reminder for those of us who need…reminding.

    In light of Pope Benedict’s precedent, I hoping that it is permissible to request that we are soon blessed with a new pope who will rescind these order. (May Pope Francis enjoy a blessed retirement).

    Joining in the novena, and praying for you, your needs & intentions as well.

    Fr. Z, GOD BLESS YOU for all your work for us (your international flock!), your unfailing efforts for the TLM which will go on and thrive, and for your extraordinary guidance through all the storms.

    We will never leave the Church! We will respond to this and all the desperate troubles of life with the best virtue we can muster, through Jesus our merciful Lord, and Mary, our beautiful, sorrowful, and immaculate Mother.

    got to a much-needed confession on 7/16 and had the good fortune to have the confessor who – while not available as often as i’d like – has been most helpful to me in the past year. will gladly start this novena on 7/17. In your charity please pray for Father M
