St. Anthony

Daily Prayer

V. Pray for us, good St. Anthony,

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let Us Pray.

 

May it be a source of joy, O God, to your Church that we honor the memory of your Confessor and Doctor, St. Anthony. May his spiritual help always make us strong, and by his assistance may we enjoy an eternal reward. This we ask through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord. Amen.

St. Anthony of Padua, a native of Portugal, was born in Lisbon, in the year 1195. When he was 15, he joined the Canon Regular of St. Augustine and remained a monk for ten years.

Filled with missionary ardor St. Anthony entered the Franciscan Order in which he spent the remaining 11 years of his short life. He died in Italy at Vercelli on June 13, 1231, and was canonized by Pope Gregory IX within a year.

In contrast to the brevity of St. Anthony’s life is the universality of his appeal which remains undimmed today after almost 800 years. He is recognized by many observers as the most popular of all the Saints of God.

The followers and clients of St. Anthony are legion in every Christian land. They have over the centuries observed Tuesday as a special day consecrated to his honor.

Saint Anthony is rightly celebrated as the Wonder-Worker of Padua, the city which guards his tomb, and by Catholics the world over as the Saint of Miracles.

Two Solemn Novenas of Masses and Prayers in honor of St. Anthony

For your intentions, and those of all who are dear to you, we have arranged two Solemn Novenas of Masses:

  • A Solemn Novena of Masses in petition from the second to the tenth of the month; and
  • A Solemn Novena of Masses in thanksgiving from the 11th to the 19th of the month.

You are invited to send in your intentions, both petitions and thanksgivings, to be remembered in these two Solemn Novenas.

    Please kindly help me pray our Lord will save, restore and protect my marriage from any forms of evil, especially from divorce and selfishness. May our Lord rekindle the love we have for each other in even greater measure than before. May our Lord touch my wife’s heart to spend her free time with me from now on and fight for our marriage. Please Lord, protect my marriage especially my wife from bad influence and remove anyone or anything interfering with the restoration of our marriage. Please bless us abundance of Love, Peace, GoodHealth & Happy Prosperous Life. I pray the same for ALL couples around the world earnestly praying for the restoration and healing in their marriage. Thank you for your prayers.
