Seeds we now are sowing,
with every word and deed,
Our characters sprout clearly
From our choice of tiny seeds;
When God sends down His reapers,
our gladness or our woe
Will spring most unavoidably
from the nature of seeds we sow.
PRAYER TO SAINT ANN
O glorious Saint Ann, you are filled with compassion for those who invoke you, and with love for those suffer.
Heavily burdened with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present intention, which I recommend to you in your special care.
Please recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and place it before the throne of Jesus, so that he may bring it to a happy issue.
Continue to intercede for me until my request is granted.
But above all obtain for me the grace one day to see my God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the saints to praise and bless him for all eternity. Amen.
Our Father; Hail Mary; Glory be.
Saint Ann, help me now and at the hour of my death! Good Saint Ann, intercede for me!
