Catholic Prayer: Chaplet of St. Anthony

Description:

This chaplet is composed of thirteen decades of three beads each. On the first bead of each decade is said the Our Father, on the second the Hail Mary, and on the third the Glory be to the Father. At the end the Miraculous Responsorial is recited.

Prayer:

The Miraculous Responsorial (by St. Bonaventura)

If miracles thou vain would see; Lo, error, death, calamity. The leprous stain, the demon flies, From beds of pain the sick arise.

The hungry seas forgo their prey, The prisoner's cruel chains give way; While palsied limbs and chattels lost Both young and old recovered boast.

And perils perish, plenty's hoard, Is heaped on hunger's famished board; Let those relate who know it well, Let Padua of her patron tell.

The hungry seas forgo their prey,...

Glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

The hungry seas forgo their prey,...

V. Pray for us, blessed Anthony, R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us Pray O God, let the votive commemoration of Blessed Anthony, Thy confessor, be a source of joy in Thy Church, that she may always be fortified with spiritual assistance, and may deserve to possess eternal joy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
