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