Petition to Saint Anthony

Charitable protector of those who have recourse to thee, since thou hast received the gift of miracles, I ask of thee the grace of my conversion and perseverance. Present all my needs before the throne of God, keep from me and from all those who are dear to me sickness, adversity, and disgrace; and by the power of thy prayers obtain for us the best blessings of heaven and earth. Amen.
