The Miraculous Responsory in Honor of St. Anthony
All dangers vanish at your prayer, And direst needs do quickly flee, Let those who know your power proclaim— Let Paduans say—these are of you. The sea obeys, and fetters break, And lifeless limbs you do restore; While treasures lost are found again, When young or old your aid implore.
To Father, Son may glory be, And Holy Spirit eternally. The sea obeys, and fetters break, And lifeless limbs you do restore; While treasures lost are found again When young or old your aid implore. Pray for us, blessed Anthony, That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Almighty God, you have given St. Anthony to your people as an outstanding preacher and a ready helper in time of need. With his assistance may we follow the Gospel of Christ and know the help of your grace in every difficulty. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
