Saint Anthony of Padua

Almighty, ever-living God, you gave Saint Antony of Padua to your people as a preacher of great power and a patron in their needs. Grant that, with his help, we may follow a Christian way of life and feel your aid in all our trials. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
