Novena to St. Anthony of Padua ~~ Day 1~~

O wonderful St. Anthony,
glorious on account of the fame of your miracles,
and through the condescension of Jesus
in coming in the form of a little child to rest in your arms,
obtain for me of His bounty the grace
which I ardently desire from the depths of my heart..
(our prayer intention here)
You who were so compassionate toward miserable sinners,
regard not the unworthiness of those who pray to you,
but the glory of God that it may once again be magnified
by the granting of the particular request..
(our prayer intention here.)
which I now ask for with persevering earnestness. Amen

Next, recite in honour of St. Anthony:

Our Father,Hail Mary,Glory Be to the Father.

Saint Anthony, pray for us!

Day One

O holy St. Anthony,
gentlest of saints,
your love for God and charity for his creatures
made you worthy while on earth to possess miraculous powers.
Miracles waited your word,
which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety.
Encouraged by this thought,
I implore you to obtain for me the favor I seek in this novena...
(our prayer intention here.)

The answer to my prayer may require a miracle;
even so, you are the saint of miracles.
O gentle and loving Saint Anthony,
whose heart was ever full of human sympathy,
whisper my petition into the ears of the Infant Jesus,
who loved to be folded in your arms,
and thee gratitude of my heart will always be yours.

Next, recite in honour of St. Anthony...

Our Father,
Hail Mary,
Glory Be to the Father.

Saint Anthony, pray for us!
