This St Ann coloring page commemorates a saint very well known in the Catholic Church: Saint Anne, mother to Our Lady, grandmother to the Child Jesus.
This coloring page shows St. Anne teaching Mary how to read a passage that sums up the life of St. Anne: "And thou shouldest have one to comfort thy soul, and cherish thy old age."(Ruth 4:15)
The only thing lacking in the lives of Sts. Anne and Joachim was their childlessness. In St. Anne's old years, she was chosen by God to be the mother of Mary, His own Mother on earth.
Give your teenagers a slower childhood like the ones their grandparents enjoyed with an afternoon tea party aided by the peaceful and beautiful music provided by Tea Time with Teen Day.

"She watched over her every moment with reverent tenderness, and felt herself hourly sanctified by the presence of her immaculate child."-Little Pictorial Lives of the Saints
But Anne had given Mary back to God and only had her for three years before she and Joachim presented her into the Temple.
Like another Anna from the Old Testament who prayed for a child and was given Samuel, Saint Anne was given Mary and, like Anna, gave her back to God when Mary was very young.
Anne then spent the remainder of her days childless.
"She humbly adored the Divine Will, and began again to watch and pray, till God called her to unending rest with the Father and the Spouse of Mary in the home of Mary's son." -Little Pictorial Lives of the Saints
This is an example to us that everything we have comes from God and that we should strive all our lives to try to give back as much as we can to Him, our belongings, our children, and ourselves.
Although Anne spent the rest of her life with an empty next after the three short years a child brightened her home, we can be sure that she was very happy. Saints always are happy doing the Will of God.
St. Anne's feast day is July 26th. This is a fun day to celebrate Grandmothers' Day! You can do something special for your grandmothers on St. Anne's feast day. Buy her a card, have her up for dinner or simply give her a call. She'll love it.
Please say a little prayer for our artist, Bee Jay.
