Dear St. Ann,
You were truly twice blessed to have
our blessed Mother As your daughter
and Jesus our Savior As your grandson.
I know that every period of our lives
has its responsibilities and joys.
Today, it seems that grandparents
are either shunted aside to do nothing,
or are called upon to do everything.
Help me to know just where my duties lie
and to carry them out as best I can.
Take care of my family,
my children, and their children.
Inspire them all to follow your Grandson
and lead truly Christian lives.
Keep all of us in your loving care,
Never let us turn away from Jesus,
And help us in the end to receive the joy
Of entering into your Grandsons’
Glorious presence forever.
Good St. Ann pray for us grandparents.
