Today Anna bequeaths joy to all instead of sorrow,
by bringing forth her fruit the only ever-Virgin.
In fulfillment of her vow,
today with joy she brings to the temple of the Lord,
the true temple and pure Mother of God the Word.
Holy Father Jacob,
Teacher of the knowledge of God.
You revealed your love for your people,
Taking up your cross and following Christ.
Enduring hardships like the apostle Paul.
Pray on our behalf to Christ our God,
To grant us great mercy!
