Prayer to St. Joachim.




Prayer to St. Joachim.

O great and glorious patriarch St. Joachim, how I rejoice in the thought that thou wast selected from among all the saints to cooperate in the divine mysteries, and to enrich the world with the great Mother of God, Mary most holy! By this special privilege thou didst become most powerful with the Mother and with the Son, so thatthere is no grace, however great, which thou canst not obtain. Animated with such confidence, I have recourse to thy powerful protection, and recommend to thee all my needs, and those of my family, both spiritual and temporal, but particularly the special grace which I desire and expect from thy fatherly intercession. And as thou wert a perfect model of the interior life, obtain for me the grace of recollection and detachment from the fleeting goods of this earth, with a lively and persevering love for Jesus and Mary. Obtain for me, also, sincere devotion and obedience to Holy Church, and to the Sovereign Pontiff governing it, that I may live and die in faith, hope, and perfect charity, invoking the holy names of Jesus and Mary, and thus be saved. Amen.

Indulgence of 300 days, once a day. (No. 453)
