Begin Novena to St. Anthony Today

My favorite portrait of St. Anthony.  By Charles Bosseron Chambers.

Novena to St. Anthony of Padua

As for all novena's pray once a day for nine days, beginning on 4 June and ending on June 12th.  The Feast of St. Anthony is June 13th . Or, begin on June 5th to end on the feast day. Some pray a Novena to St. Anthony on thirteen consecutive Tuesdays, per the instructions of Pope Leo XIII, or on all Tuesdays.

Also by Chambers.
O White lily of purity, sublime example of poverty, true mirror of humility, resplendent star of sanctity. O glorious St Anthony, who didst enjoy the sweet privilege of receiving into thy arms the Infant Jesus, I beseech thee to take me under they powerful protection. Thou in whom the power of working miracles shines forth among the other gifts of God, have pity upon me and come to my aid in this my great need.

(Mention your intentions here)

Cleanse my heart from every disorderly affection, obtain for me a true contrition for my sins and a great love of God and of my neighbour that serving God faithfully in this life, I may come to praise, enjoy and bless Him eternally with thee in Paradise.

Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.
