Prayers to Saint Anthony

The Responsory in honor of Saint Anthony....

If you ask for miracles,
Death, error, all calamities,
The leprosy and demons fly,
And health succeeds infirmities.

The sea obeys and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore;
Whilst treasures lost are found again
When young or old thine aid implore.

All dangers vanish at thy prayer,
And direst need doth quickly flee.
Let those who know thy power proclaim-
Let Paduans say- these are of thee.

The sea obeys and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore;
Whilst treasures lost are found again
When young or old thine aid implore.

To Father, Son, may glory be,
And Holy Ghost eternally.

The sea obeys and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore;
Whilst treasures lost are found again
When young or old thine aid implore.

V. Pray for us, blessed Anthony:
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Let your Church, O God, be made joyful by the solemn commemoration of blessed Anthony, your confessor and doctor; that the Church may always be defended by your spiritual help and merit to possess eternal joys. Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Wonder Worker

After you died, Saint Anthony, God chose to make your holiness known to the world and to draw people by working miracles in answer to prayers made in your name.

Since then, people have asked God to continue to honor you by working wonders through your intercession.

Those who have experienced the power of prayers offered in your name have told how God has answered them.

God has healed the sick, restored peace of mind, relieved poverty and granted favors of all kinds.

Now in this time of need, I ask you, SaintAnthony, to pray with me for the things I desire.

I pray that God may again give us a sign of loving care and providence and that, through you, God may draw us all to the fullness of life and love in eternity. Amen.

Prayer for Lost Objects

Saint Anthony, when you prayed your stolen book of prayers was given back to you.

Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear.

Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God.

Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death.

Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit.

Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love.

Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping.

Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ's comfort and peace. Amen.
