Dear St. Anthony,
you became a Franciscan
with the hope of shedding your blood for Christ.
In God’s plan for you,
your thirst for martyrdom was never to be satisfied.
St. Anthony, Martyr of Desire,
pray that I may become less afraid to stand up
and be counted as a follower of the Lord Jesus.
Intercede also for my other intentions.
(State your other intentions here…)
