Novena Prayer to St. Anthony

Saint Anthony of Padua was a Portuguese Catholic priest who had an astounding gift of preaching. He was proclaimed Doctor of the Church after his death. He is the patron saint of barren women, pregnant women, travelers, elderly people and so on. His powerful intercession is invoked for finding lost articles and by those in danger of shipwreck. Saint Anthony’s Feast is celebrated on the 13th of June. Here is a Novena to Saint Anthony which is to be recited for nine days from June 4th to June 12th.

O Gracious Saint Anthony, We praise you for your great virtues and remarkable humility. With the help of Jesus, nothing is impossible with you. So, we know that sickness and death, perils and snares, evils and dangers disappear through your intercession. You find what is lost; you comfort the afflicted; and you help the worst of sinners to repent. There is nothing impossible for you, O dear Saint Antony. O faithful friend of Baby Jesus, please be our support, our patron, and our eternal benefactor. Procure all our needs, both material and spiritual, from Heavenly Father through your kind and powerful intercession, and more especially, the one that we beg of you now …… (specify your intention here).

O most loving and gentle saint, we will always proclaim your blessings with a grateful heart. We commend our body and soul, our whole self and all that we have to your care. It is never heard that you have disowned anyone; so protect us from all dangers. Help us to face life and its problems with serenity and to live a virtuous life without any taint of sin.

May you, be our stronghold, in our moments of temptation. Give us a loving and generous heart. Finally, we pray to you to give us the readiness of heart to share all the good that we receive with our poor and needy brothers and sisters. Amen.
