Holy and Righteous Ancestors of God, Joachim and Anna

Commemorated on September 9

Troparion — Tone 1

Since you were righteous under the law of grace, O Joachim and Anna, / you gave birth to the God-given infant for our sake. / Therefore, the divine Church radiantly keeps feast today, / joyfully celebrating your honorable memory and giving glory to God / who has raised up a horn of salvation from the house of David.

Kontakion — Tone 2

(Podoben: “Seeking the highest…”)
Anna is now no longer barren / and nurses the All-Pure One! / She rejoices and calls us all to sing a hymn of praise to Christ, / she who from her womb gave mankind the only ever Virgin Mother.
