Day 1

Great Saint Anne,
engrave indelibly on my heart and in my mind
the words that have reclaimed and sanctified
so many sinners:

world if he lose his own soul?”

Day 5

Great Saint Anne,
how far I am from resembling you.
I so easily give way to impatience
and discouragement;
and so easily give up praying
when God does not at
once answer my request.

Prayer is the key to all heavenly treasures
and I cannot pray,
because my weak faith and lack of
confidence fail me at the
slightest delay of divine mercy.
O my powerful protectress,
come to my aid,
listen to my petition…
(State your intention here.)
make my confidence and fervor,
supported by the promise of Jesus Christ,
redouble in proportion as the trial to
which God in His goodness subjects me is prolonged,
that I may obtain like you more
than I can venture to ask for.
In the future I will remember that I am
made for heaven and not for earth;
for eternity and not for time;
that consequently I must ask,
above all,
the salvation of my soul which is
assured to all who pray
properly and who persevere in Pray.
Amen.
Recite the…
Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be to the Father…

Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises
of Christ.

Day 6

Glorious Saint Anne,
mother of the Mother of God,
I beg you to obtain through your powerful
intercession the pardon of my sins and the
assistance I need in my troubles…
(State your intention here.)

What can I not hope for if you deign to take me
under your protection?
The Most High has been please to grant the
prayers of sinners,
whenever you have been charitable enough to be
their advocate.
Kneeling at your feet,
I beg you to help me in all spiritual
and temporal dangers;
to guide me in the true path of Christian perfection,
and finally to obtain for me the grace
of ending my life with the death of the just,
so that I may contemplate face to face your
beloved Jesus and daughter Mary in your
loving companionship throughout eternity.
Amen.

Recite the…
Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be to the Father…
Pray for us, Saint Anne!
That we may be made worthy of the promises

Day 7

O Good Saint Anne,
so justly called the mother of the infirm,
the cure for those who suffer from disease,
look kindly upon the sick for
whom I pray;
alleviate their sufferings;
cause them to sanctify their
sufferings by patience and complete
submission to the divine will;
finally deign to obtain health for them
and with it the firm resolution to honor
Jesus,
Mary,
and yourself by the faithful
performance of duties.

But, merciful Saint Anne,
I ask you above all for the salvation of my soul,
rather than bodily health,
for I am convinced that this fleeting life is given us
solely to assure us a better one.
Now,
we cannot obtain that better life without the
help of God’s graces.
I earnestly beg them of you for
the sick and for myself,
especially the petition for which I am
making in this novena…

(State your intention here.)

through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ,
through the intercession of His Immaculate Mother,
and through the efficacious and powerful mediation.
O glorious Saint Anne,

Amen.

Day 8

Remember,
O Saint Anne,
you whose name signifies grace and mercy,
that never was it known that anyone who
fled to your protection,
implored your help,
and sought your intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto you,
good,
and kind mother;
I take refuge at your feet,
burdened with the weight of my sins.
O holy mother of the Immaculate Virgin Mary,
despise not my petition…
(State your intention here.)
but hear me and grant my prayer
Amen.
Recite the…

Our Father…
Hail Mary…

Day 9

Most holy mother of the Virgin Mary,
glorious Saint Anne,
I,
a miserable sinner,
confiding in your kindness,
choose you today as my special advocate.
I offer and consecrate my person
and all my interests to your care and maternal
solicitude.
I hope To serve you and honor you
all my life for the love of your most holy
daughter and to do all in my power to spread
devotion to you.
O my very good mother and advocate,
deign to accept me as your servant,
and to adopt me as you child.

novena…

(State your intention here.)
and the grace of leading a life perfectly
conformable in all things to the divine will.

I place my soul in your hands and in those of
your kind daughter.
I confide it to you,
above all at the moment when it will be to
separate itself from my body in order that,
appearing under your patronage
before the Supreme Judge,
He may find it worthy of enjoying His Divine
Presence in your holy companionship in Heaven.

Amen.
Recite the…

Our Father…
