You are invited to join the Marianists during this Novena by reciting the following prayers for nine days:
Prayer to Saints Joachim and Anne
Saints Joachim and Anne, we bless you for your great faith and love as parents. Your respect and reverence for the sacredness of human life made you the parents of Mary, Mother of the Lord. Through your intercession, we ask God to grant young people today that same reverence for the gift of new life. May they accept, cherish, and nourish life from the very moment of conception. Grant to us as a nation a renewed reverence for every human life. As Mary cherished her Child from the womb even to the tomb, so may we see in every person the very image of God. Great Saints Joachim and Anne, we ask this grace in the name of Mary's Son, Jesus the Lord. Amen.
