 An angel appeared to Anne, the wife of Joachim, who was childless and advanced in years. She was told that, “Anne, the Lord hath heard thy prayer and thou shalt conceive and bring forth, and thy seed shall be spoken of in all the world.” And thus, Anne became the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
   This cross is inspired by a wrought iron design before the altar of St. Anne in the Basilica of Sacre Coeur atop Montmartre in Paris, France.
   St. Anne is the patron saint of housewives and women in labor. A special altar at Sacre Coeur is dedicated to the women and children at risk in occupied France during WWII.
