Prayer to St. Anthony
(For Divine Protection)

O dear St. Anthony, by your holy example and apostolic life you led countless souls to the protection of our Divine Lord.

I beg of you, obtain that same protection and guidance for me and those dear to me during these times of dire distress.

In your tender charity, watch over our country and those serving it.

Obtain courage and strength for their loved ones.

On earth your heart overflowed with compassion for those in danger or distress.

In heaven you have never failed those who called on you with confidence.

I know you will not fail me now; that you will help me always to remain close to our Lord,  Who is the Divine Protector of mankind.

O powerful Wonder-Worker, in this hour of need obtain what I ask of you.  Amen.

Profile

    Anthony’s wealthy family wanted him to be a great nobleman, but for the sake of Christ he became a poor Franciscan. Priest.

    When the remains of Saint Berard and his companions, the first Franciscan martyrs, were brought to be buried in his church, Anthony was moved to leave his order, enter the Friars Minor, and go to Morocco to evangelize. Shipwrecked at Sicily, he joined some other brothers who were going to the church in Portiuncula. Lived in a cave at San Paolo leaving only to attend Mass and sweep the nearby monastery. One day when a scheduled speaker failed to appear, the brothers pressed him into speaking. He impressed them so that he was thereafter constantly travelling, evangelizing, preaching, and teaching theology through Italy and France.

    A gifted speaker, he attracted crowds everywhere he went, speaking in multiple tongues; legend says that even the fish loved to listen. Miracle worker. One of the most beloved of saints, his images and statues are found everywhere – though none of them portray him as a heavy-set man, which some reports claim he was. Proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 16 January 1946.

    One source of the well-known patronage for the recovery of lost objects comes from a legend that, long after Anthony’s death, his old prayer book was kept as a treasured relic, and one day it disappeared. People prayed for help in finding the lost item, a novice found it and returned it; he later admitted that he had “borrowed” the book and returned it after receiving a vision of an angry Anthony.
