Saint Anthony of Padua. Holy Saint Anthony, gentle and powerful in your help, your love for God and charity for His creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous
powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were always ready to
request for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I
implore you to obtain for me (request). The answer to my prayer
may require a miracle. Even so, you are the Saint of miracles. Gentle
and loving Saint Anthony, whose heart is ever full of human sympathy,
take my petition to the Infant Savior for whom you have such a great
love, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.
