Ss. Joachim and Ann

Saint of the Day

Joachim and Ann—whether these are their real names or not—represent that entire quiet series of generations who faithfully perform their duties, practice their faith and establish an atmosphere for the coming of the Messiah, but remain obscure.

 

This feast of Joachim and Ann helps me to remember with great fondness my own grandparents, now gone home to the Father.  They were a big part of passing on the faith to me, and I am so grateful for that.  Ss. Joachim and Ann, grandparents of Jesus, pray for us.
