Blessed Art Thou Among Women by Walter Rane
On December 9 we celebrate the Conception of Virgin Mary by Saint Anne and her husband Saint Joachim. Anne was the youngest daughter of Levite priest Nathan (from Bethlehem), and Saint Joakim was from Galilee. They prayed to have a child for 20 years. Virgin Mary was conceived and born in Jerusalem. From ancient times, this feast was especially venerated by pregnant women.
