Brief Description

Holy Righteous Joachim and Anna, the parents of the Most Holy Theotokos, did not have children until a very advanced age but they never stopped asking the Lord to bless them with offspring. The prayer of the holy couple was answered: an Angel announced to them that they will give birth to a daughter though whom the entire human race will be blessed. Ss Joachim and Anna are an example of a strong faith and reliance on God for us.

Commemorated on September 22.
