Anthony the Abbot accepted your call to renounce the things of this world and to love you above all. He faithfully served you in the solitude of the desert by fasting, prayer, humility and good works.
In the Sign of The Cross, he triumphed over the Devil.
Through his intercession, may we learn to love you better; with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, all our strength and to love our neighbours as we love ourselves.
St. Anthony, great and powerful saint, grant us also this special request […].
We ask this through Jesus, who lives and reigns with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. One God forever and ever.
