Note:  The USCCB site normally shows alternate readings when available but doesn't today. Here's what's in the Lectionary for Sts. Joachim and Anne and what was actually read:
Sirach 44:1, 10-15 praise of our godly ancestors
Ps 132:11, 13-14, 17-18 The Lord has chosen Zion for his dwelling.
Mt 13:16-17 Blessed your eyes and ears. Many longed to see and hear what you do.



PS:  We don't know about Mary's parents from Scripture.  Do we know anything from anywhere about Joseph's??
