A Pilgrim's prayer to Saint Anne

Saint Anne and her daughter Mary

Saint Anne, I have come to honour you and to call upon you in this blessed Shrine of Beaupré. Here, pilgrims have often felt some of the fruits of your goodness, power, and intercession.

Like every true pilgrim, I also have favours to ask of you. I know that you will be as good to me as you have been, in the past, to thousands of others who have come to implore you in this Shrine.

Saint Anne, you know the grace of which I stand most in need at the present moment, the special favour for which I have undertaken this pilgrimage. Hear my prayer.

I entrust to your care, all of my material and spiritual needs. I commend my family, my country, the Church, and the whole world to you.

Keep me faithful to Christ and His Church and one day, escort me into the Father's Eternal Home.
