Prayer of Thanksgiving St Anthony of Padua

Most loving protector, great St. Anthony, I hasten to thank you. Full of
appreciation and profound gratitude I acknowledge the favors you have secured
for me in reply to my prayers and those of our Franciscan missionaries.
Because you answered my petitions and all those the children of the missions
offered for my intentions, I rejoice in your power with God and your unfailing
goodness to your brothers in Christ. May you ever be honored and blessed, most
powerful wonder-worker of Padua! May your merits and favors remain an
unending hymn of praise to the most Holy Trinity, and to our blessed Lady, Queen
of Heaven.
Pray: Our Father
