Anna and Joachim are the parents of the Virgin Mary. Joachim is a pastor and lives in Jerusalem, an elderly priest is married to Anna. The two had no children and had a couple getting on in years. One day while Joachim was working in the fields, appeared to him an angel, to announce the birth of a son and Anna also has the same vision. They call their daughter Mary, which means "loved by God." Joachim brings back to her temple gifts along with the child, ten lambs, twelve calves without blemish, and a hundred kids. Later, Mary is taken to the temple to be educated under the law of Moses. Anne is invoked as protector of pregnant women, which she directed for three great favors from God, a happy birth, a healthy child and milk enough to be able to raise.
