Deus, qui prae omnibus Sanctis tuis beatum Joachim Genitricis Filii tui patrem esse voluisti: concede, quaesumus: ut cujus festa veneramur, ejus quoque perpetuo patrocinia sentiamus.
Let us pray
O God, Who, out of all thy Saints, didst choose blessed Joachim to be the father of the mother of thy Son, mercifully grant that as we hold his Festival in honour, we may ever feel his protection.
