O glorious Saint Anthony, servant and friend of God, I salute you through the most loving Heart of our Divine Savior, Jesus Christ, who you held in your pure arms under the form of a child. I choose you today as my patron, advocate and father. I place all my cares and temptations in your hands. I earnestly resolve never to forsake you.Great Saint, lily of celestial purity, obtain for me and all your other friends perfect purity of body and soul.
