Joachim And Anna
Feast Day - September 9th.
Holy Righteous Ancestors of God, Saints Joachim and Anna St. Joachim, son of Barpathir, are shown in traditional Jewish dress of the times. Their hands are raised over their hearts as a motion to make the sign of the cross. Their two fingers and thumb form the two natures of Christ and the letter C for Jesus Christ.
