ST. VINCENT'S NEWS

CAUTION from Fr. Yagaza, Please Read!

 

A number of our parishioners have been receiving e-mail or text messages (sms) with my name letting them know that I am at the meeting and requesting them to buy music cards from Amazon for my patients. I want to inform all the public that I have never made such a request and I will not make such a request. Some con people are trying to misuse my name for their gain. Kindly when you receive such messages, ignore them.  Fr. Severine

Devotion to St. Anne

The Mother of our Blessed Mother Mary and the Grandmother of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ feast day is July 26th . St. Vincent's will continue its 129th Novena to St. Anne July 24-26th. Although St. Anne is not mentioned in the Gospels, her stature among Saints is great indeed and she has played a key role in numerous healings and miracles.

 

Saint Anne is a powerful intercessor, combining the fortitude of age and the tender solicitude of motherhood and grandmotherhood, Here are just a few ways we can relate to St. Anne and beg her intercession.

 

Intercessor for children and grandchildren - In these fraught times, mothers and grandmothers naturally worry about the well being of children. From St. Anne's special vantage point in heaven, she sees your women's and the dangers faced by young people, but she is firmly anchored in the peace and promises of God and Our Lady to take care of all the little ones.

 

Intercessor for wives and mothers - As a wife or mother, you can turn to St. Anne, faithful spouse of St. Joachim, for help in carry out your duties virtuously. For men as husbands and/or sons, ask St. Anne to help you love wife or mother better.

 

Intercessor for expectant mothers - According to tradition, St. Anne and Joachim prayed fervently for many years for the gift of a baby before the arrival of Mary, the Immaculate Conception. Like any loving grandmother, St. Anne is eager to pray for pregnant mothers, for safe pregnancies and deliveries.

 

Intercessor for workers - As traditional patroness of miners., St. Anne's care for those particularly in dangerous lines of work is a natural association for us today. St. Anne, watch over those who take physical risks to provide the rest of us with our various needs and comforts.

 

Intercessor for the elderly - St. Anne reminds us of the wisdom, love, and being vs doing beauty of the gift of old age. Ask her to pray for your own elderly relatives, neighbors, and especially for those who have been abandoned and have no one to visit or pray for them.

Intercessor for those without children - St, Anne has a heart for the childless, Whether in sadness, in loneliness, in regret, turn to St Anne for comfort and company. Pray to her for the children who've been abandoned in these godless times, for the victims of abortion, and for orphans.

 

Intercessor for patience - In a "culture of now': St. Anne can help us to wait patiently. Conditioned as we are to receive instant gratification at the click of a button or the swipe of a credit card, we all need help in slowing down, resting and sitting still. Ask her to teach you to grow in gentleness and patience.
