Our Family Prayer to St. Anthony of Padua

Dear Saint Anthony, hear the prayer, which I offer you for my family and for the Great Family of those devoted to you throughout the world.

Intercede for each one of us and obtain the blessings of heaven upon our labours. Help us in our moment of weakness. Be our defense against sickness and dangers of body and soul; support us in the sufferings and trials, which God in His Wisdom deems fit to send us. Allow us not to falter in our Faith. Obtain for us from the Lord goodness of heart so that we may share God’s bounty with the poor and suffering.

Hear our prayers, oh Saint of Wonders respond favorably to the trust we place in your powerful intercession before God. Amen.
