Glorious Saint Anthony, my friend and special protector, I come to you with full confidence in my present necessity. In your overflowing generosity you hear all those who turn to you. Your influence before the throne
is so effective that the Lord
readily grants great favors at your request. Please listen to my humble petition in spite of my unworthiness and sinfulness. Consider only your great and constant love for Jesus
and Mary, and my desire for their glory
and mercy. I beg you to obtain for me the grace
I so greatly need, if it be God's will
and for the good
of my soul. I place this earnest petition in the care of the little mission children
so that they may present it to you along their innocent prayers. Bless me, powerful Saint Anthony, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
