Augustinian Prayers and Devotions

Prayer to Saint Anne for married couple

Saint Anne, make us understand the beauty
and dignity of Christian marriage!
May the spouses above all, and the young too appreciate
the greatness of the vocation to marriage according to God’s plan.

God has created man and woman with a natural inclination
to unite in one flesh and to procreate children destined to live happily. 

In this world, where so many have lost the notion of God
and belittle the supernatural and even the natural values of life,
do pray, Saint Anne, that spouses may find again the true way to love, happiness and life.

Would they be united in genuine affection
and become day by day a better sacrament,
a more perfect sign of God’s love for mankind
and of Christ’s love for His Church!
Protect them against misunderstanding and separation!
Make them responsible educators of their children!

Bless us, Saint Anne, bless all the married persons,
especially those who are facing serious problems.
