ST. ANTHONY CHAPLET
On the first bead pray one Our Father, on the second one Hail Mary, and on the third one Glory Be. Repeat for all thirteen sets. On the medal conclude with:
Miraculous Responsory of St. Bonaventure “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; the prisoner's cruel chains give way. Glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. The hungry seas forgo their prey; the prisoner's cruel chains give way. Glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.”
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 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.”
