A gift bestowed from dearly beloved ones are most cherished. Foremost precious presents granted are by God for His unconditional love. What could ever be more valuable than His gift in life. He gave us His life, love, peace, hope and Kingdom. This inheritance we strive was done through the holy root of mankind Adam for he was told “I will be born from grandson and save you.” (Book of Clement)
The mother of our virgin Saint Mary Anne was born in Bethlehem in Judaea. She married Joachim. They were righteous people in front of God. Joachim reproached at the Temple for his sterility, retreated into the countryside to pray, while Anne, grieved by his disappearance and by her barrenness, solemnly promised God that, if given a child, she would dedicate it to the Lord’s service. They prayed earnestly asking God to grant them a child. They shared a wealthy and devout life at Nazareth.
Dear Children of God, how are you? How is the winter season with your family, relatives and friends? Time is valuable and we should schedule it in the right manner.

Grief came upon me
My heart sank
in desire of hollo!
