Joachim and Anne: Love for Generations
by Barbara Yoffie
Saints Joachim and Anne were Mary's parents and Jesus' grandparents. They were a devout and loving couple who welcomed each member of their family with great longing and joy. As heads of their domestic church, they taught the generations below them how to love and follow God. Saints Joachim and Anne are the patron saints of grandparents and their feast day is July 26.
