The Miraculous Repository

If miracles thou fain would see, Lo, error, death, calamity. The leprous stain, the demon flies, from beds of pain the sick arise. (The hungry seas forgo their prey, The prisoner’s cruel chains give way; While palsied limbs and chattels lost Both young and old recovered boast.)

And perils perish, plenty’s hoard, Is heaped on hunger’s famished board; Let those relate who know it well, Let Padua on her patron tell. (The hungry seas forgo their prey, the prisoner’s cruel chains give way; While palsied limbs and chattels lost Both young and old recovered boast.)

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Sprit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world with out end. Amen.

(The hungry seas forgo their prey, The prisoner’s cruel chains give way; While palsied limbs and chattels lost Both young and old recovered boast.)

V – Pray for us, blessed Anthony;
R – That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. O God, let the votive commendation of Blessed Anthony, Thy Confessor, be a source of joy to Thy Church, that she may always be fortified with spiritual assistance, and may deserve to possess eternal joy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Sign of the Cross: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”
