St. Anthony, dear friend and heavenly guide,
be present to me now,
and let me know your compassion.
Pray to our dear Lord for me,
that I may experience calmness and peace in my emotions.
Help me to grow in faith and hope.
Protect me from all that displeases God,
and obtain for me serenity of mind and spirit.
I place all my confidence in you, St. Anthony,
and I pray for mercy,
grace and God’s gently goodness.
