PRAYER OF SAINT BONAVENTURE TO SAINT ANTHONY OF PADUA

Let those who seek for miracles invoke the glorious St. Anthony.
At his word all evils disappear:
death and error, demons and leprosy;
the sick rise up restored to perfect health.

His word and presence calm the troubled seas
and break the captive’s chain,
lost things are found,
and old and young never appeal to him in vain.
Perils are averted, hostilities cease.

If proof be needed of the truth of this,
listen to the testimony of the people of Padua,
eyewitnesses to these wondrous deeds.

St Anthony of Padua,
pray for us.
