Dear St. Anthony,
you took the words of Jesus seriously,
“Be perfect, even as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
The Church honors you as a Christian hero,
a man wholly dedicated to God’s glory
and the good of the redeemed.
St. Anthony, Model of Perfection,
ask Jesus to strengthen my good dispositions
and to make me more like you,
more like Him.
Obtain for me the other favors I need.
