O Holy Saint Anthony, the gentlest and kindest of all Saints, your burning love of God, your exalted virtues and your great charity towards your fellow creatures made you worthy, when on earth to possess miraculous powers such as were given to no other saint. To the sick you gave back health, you restored what was lost and the sorrow stricken were the objects of your tender compassion.
Encouraged by this thought and convinced of the efficacy of your holy intercession, I kneel before your holy image and full of confidence, I implore you to obtain for me the favour that I now need. (Name intention).
O gentle and loving St. Anthony, you whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my prayer into the ears of the Infant Jesus, who loved to linger in your arms. One word from you and my prayer will be granted.
