Unfailing Prayer to St. Anthony
"Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints."
O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, you love for God and Charity for His creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (state request here). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the Saint of Miracles.
O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the eaars of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms; and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.
(Then say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be)
Two beautifully aged vintage medals on this necklace make it a stylish piece of jewelry, but a good understanding of the importance of the medals make it a real treasure!
Saint Anthony is best known as the patron saint of lost articles, but he is a wonderful intercessor for those suffering with cancer, a consoler of the afflicted, a disperser of devils, an example of humility, restorer of sight to the blind, restorer of speech to the mute, and, since he is a Christian hero, a "Model of Perfection."
The miraculous medal honors the Immaculate Conception. The Blessed Mother appeared three separate times in 1830 in Paris to Sister Catherine Labore, a member of the Daughters of Charity. On the second and third visions, a command was given to have a medal struck after the model revealed, and a promise of great graces was made to those who wear it when blessed.
