Saint Anthony Novena and Prayers
Almost 800 years after his death, Anthony remains a very popular saint. Born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1195, Anthony was a Franciscan friar, a preacher, missionary, the first Franciscan teacher of theology, provincial, and healer known for his miraculous healings. He died at 36 years of age. Although he is popularly known as the finder of lost objects, Anthony's concern is not so much for finding lost things as for finding those who have lost their path to God. His love and care for the needy gave rise to the Franciscan tradition of St. Anthony's bread. He stressed that everyone is called to holiness, anticipating the teaching of Vatican II. St. Anthony is invoked as the patron of those seeking the light of faith, travelers and sailors, those seeking lost objects, and the poor.
The booklet includes morning and evening prayers, the devotion of the Thirteen Tuesdays in Honor of St. Anthony, Prayer for Guidance and Protection, Prayer to Recover Something Lost, Prayer for One Who Has Lost Faith, Litany in Honor of St. Anthony, and more.
