Verse. Pray for us, Saint Anne.
Response. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us Pray.

O God, Who did will that Saint Anne by being the mother of Mary, the Ever Blessed Virgin, should co-operate in the work of the Redemption of Your Only-Begotten Son, grant we beseech You, that while on earth, we may so venerate the Mother of Your Son, and her Mother, Saint Anne, that at the hour of death we may rejoice in their assistance and praise and bless You forever in Heaven. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
