Our Lady and Sheen

Patron of Fathers, and parents of Our Lady

With my new obsession with Old Testament saints, I find that this is a great in between!  Today is the feast of Sts. Joachim and Anne, the parents of Our Lady, Mary, Mother of God.  It’s very exciting to have these saints together, husband and wife, model of the family church, and a reminder always of our Blessed Mother and her Son, Jesus!

Also, St. Joachim is the patron of fathers, grandfathers, and grandparents.  So, today is a great day to pray for your father, grandfathers and grandmothers, living or dead.
