Feast Day of St. Joachim

The Expulsion of Joachim from the Temple by Ghirlandaio

Today the Holy Church recalls the memory of St. Joachim, the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whose glorious assumption into Heaven we recalled yesterday.  For a more thorough post, see my prior post dedicated to Sts Anne and Joachim.

O God, Who of all Thy Saints didst choose the blessed Joachim to be father to the Mother of Thy Son: grant, we beseech Thee that we who honor his festival, may evermore experience his patronage. Through the same our Lord.
