Lectio from the office of St Anne
Deus, qui beátæ Annæ grátiam conferre dignátus es, ut Genitrícis unigeniti Fílii tui mater effici mererétur : concéde propítius ; ut, cujus solemnia celebramus, ejus apud te patrociniis adjuvemur. Per eúmdem Dóminum.
O God, who didst vouchsafe to give grace to blessed Saint Anne that she might be worthy to bear the Mother of thine only begotten Son : mercifully grant that we who rejoice in the observance of her feast day, may by her intercession find favour in thy sight. Through the same.
