St Joachim & St Anne, Parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Feast Day 26th July.
Although there is no scriptural evidence for their names Joachim and
Anne have, by tradition, been celebrated as the parents of Mary and the
grandparents of Jesus since the early centuries.
Their importance to the story of salvation can be
inferred despite the lack of scriptural evidence. Mary's life, and
especially her fiat when she accepted the Word of God at the
Annunciation, demonstrate the faith she must have witnessed in her
formative family life. At the Incarnation God became man and this is
most clearly indicated by his human mother and grandparents represented
by Joachim and Anne.
Joachim and Anne are shown holding the infant Mary.
