O gentle and loving St Anthony, flame of charity, obtain for us the grace to abandon ourselves entirely to the Divine Will under the trials which now oppress us.
O blessed Saint! none have ever invoked thee with confidence without obtaining some consolation.
We, therefore, place in thy hands our present petition, that thou mayest present it to thy dear Infant Jesus, Who can refuse thee nothing, and we doubt not that we shall find comfort in our trouble, unworthy though we may be of this favour. Amen.
– St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916
