About the Design:
The parents of our Blessed Mother are first mentioned in the Protoevangelium of St James (apocryphal book written in the second century). Struggling with their inability to conceive, St. Anne's husband St. Joachim went into the wilderness to pray for 40 days. St. Anne, lamenting her situation after seeing a nest of birds, was visited by an angel who said she would have a child. She was then reunited with St. Joachim, who had also been told the same by an angel. Their daughter Mary was born 9 months later. The watercolor portrait on this card is of St Anne teachingtheBlessedVirgin Mary. The back of the prayer card contains the "O Glorious St. Anne" prayer.
