NOVENA IN HONOR OF SAINT ANTHONY DE� PADUA

TO SAINT ANTHONY

Saint Anthony, we turn to thee
When troubles sore, distress
Sure of your love for you didst know,
The Child�s soft caress,
For you didst hear his gentle voice,
Didst clasp him to thy breast,
Didst feel his pretty cheek �gainst thine,
His arms about thee pressed.
O gentle Saint tell him our needs,
His children too are we,
O ask Him now to grant our pray�rs
And we at peace shall be
We would, O blessed Saint, with thee
The Holy Child adore
With hearts as pure as thine dear Saint,
Now and forever more.

A SHORT SERMON MAY BE GIVEN:

(In keeping with the Liturgical season)

Priest: O Most High Glorious God, you sent your Son to redeem us by dying on the cross, to take away our sins and to give us new life.� Through Him give us the grace to be reconciled to you and to one another that we may be at peace and offer sacrifices of praise together with your angels and our Patron , St. Anthony of Padua.� We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ� who lives with you and the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever.

All: AMEN.
