A Prayer to St. Anthony

A priest from Argentina recited this prayer to me when I wished him Happy St. Anthony’s Feastday.Anthony_Appearance of the Virgin Mary to_KRACKER, Johann Lucas

Blessed Anthony, who talked about God to the fishes.  Speak to me, because sometimes I only listen to the devil.  And with such love the Child (Jesus) was entrusted to you.  Like in the arms of Mary, commend me to that Child God.

Bienaventurado Antonio, que hablais de Dios a los peces.  Habladme a mi, porque a veces, no escuche mas al demonio.  Y pues con tanto cariño el Nino a ti se confía.  Como en brazos de Maria, encomendadme a Dios Nino.

Anthony, Anthony, please come around.  Something is lost and must be found.

St. Anthony, Hammer of heretics, pray for God’s Church and each one of us. Amen.
