"As we observe this memorial of Christ's ancestors…"
Sts. Joachim and Anna, with the Most-Holy Theotokos (source)
As we observe this memorial of Christ's ancestors, * of Joachim and Anna * who were saintly and blameless, * we glorify our tenderly merciful Lord and Redeemer unceasingly; * for He has herefrom translated them unto life * indestructible and aging not.
-Prosomoion of the Praises, Feast of the Dormition of St. Anna
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
