Good St. Anne

From the Divine Office of daily readings: “Today the Church honors Saints Joachim and Anne, the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the maternal grandparents of Jesus. The accounts of this holy couple in the apocryphal fourth-century Proto-evangelium of James deliver the consistent message that this couple infused wisdom, virtue, and a love for God into their family. Through them, we are reminded of the importance of the generations around us. Parents and grandparents often share experiences that build family values, cultural identity, and display the abundance of God’s love for His children.” St. Anne is my mom’s patron saint. Even though my mom said she didn’t know a lot about St. Anne, I would say she emulates her pretty well. She has always been a patient, quiet witness of faith and love. I am grateful for the impact she has made upon me and our family.

I Found God today in my mom’s sharing her faith with her family.
