The many faces of St. Francis from the Basilica

Novena to St. Anthony of Padua
Pray once a day for nine days, especially beginning on 4 June and ending on 12 June, the eve of the Feast of St. Anthony.

O White lily of purity,
sublime example of poverty,
true mirror of humility,
resplendent star of sanctity,
O glorious St Anthony,
who enjoyed the sweet privilege of receiving into your arms the Infant Jesus,
I ask you to take me under your powerful protection.
In you, the power of working miracles shines
forth among the other gifts of God,
have pity upon me and help me in this my great need.

(Mention your intentions here).

Pray for me that my heart may be cleansed from every disorderly affection;
that I may have both a true contrition for my sins
and a great love of God and of my neighbour;
that serving God faithfully in this life,
I may come to praise, enjoy and bless Him
eternally with you in Paradise. Amen

Devoutly pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.
