A few days ago I received Saint Ann’s Blessed Oil and the following prayer from Saint Ann’s Shrine in Cleveland, Ohio. The oil had been touched to a First Class Relic of St. Ann. I felt so much peace while praying to St. Ann, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The following prayer can be recited as a Nine Day Novena during times of sickness and suffering. St. Ann is the patron of mothers & grandmothers, of women in labor and of barren women.
Saint Ann, beloved patroness, I come to you with confidence as a sick person, not only because you are powerful and kind, but also because you have experienced life’s oppressive trials.
Over the centuries, you have obtained from your Grandson Jesus instant relief for countless infirm and sick people. Pilgrims to Saint Ann have never ceased thanking you for such favors.
At this moment, you know I am suffering. But, I want to unite myself with the suffering Christ. I offer my pains to the Lord so that His redemption be accomplished in all the hearts.
I count on your intercession, Saint Ann, for courage and peace of mind. Do implore God to heal me, for everything is possible to Him and He answers your prayer.
I pray to you also on behalf of all the suffering and sick people of the world, especially those I know and assist personally. (Mention names). Amen.
