Dear Saint Anthony,
I salute you as my powerful patron before God.
You know how much we yearn for happiness and
how often and how stubbornly we seek it in the wrong places.
Please ask our Lord for us for the grace He gave you so abundantly.
Thus, we may not vainly seek happiness in God’s creatures,
but only in God Himself, the source of all good.
Beg for us, powerful Saint Anthony,
the grace of an understanding heart.
Then, we will see the image of God
in all those we meet and in every creature.
Let our hearts always be fixed on the true source of our joy,
Jesus Christ, our Lord.
V. Pray for us, St. Antrhony.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
