Today we celebrate the Memorial of Saint Joachim and Saint Ann, the parents of the Blessed Mother. Can you imagine raising such a child? What a gift and a challenge they were given.
The feast reminds us to celebrate our own parents, especially those who gave us the gift of faith. So, if you have been lucky enough to have a parent who guided you toward the Lord and his church, let them know how much you appreciate that gift.
Thanks, Mom! I love you!
