St. Anthony of Padua,

Glorious for your miracles

And for the condescension of Jesus,

in coming as a little child

to repose in your arms,

obtain for me from His bounty,

the grace which I ardently desire.


You who were so compassionate towards sinners,

regard not my unworthiness,

but the glory of God,

that it may be magnified by you

in connection with the particular request

which I now earnestly present to you.


(Mention your other intentions here...)


As a pledge of my gratitude,

I beg you to accept my promise

to live more faithfully in accordance with

the teachings of the Church,

and to be devoted to the service of the poor

whom you loved and still love so greatly.


Bless this my resolution,

that I may be faithful to it

even until death.


St. Anthony, consoler of all the afflicted,

Pray for me.


St. Anthony, whom the infant Jesus

so much loved and honoured,

Pray for me.


Amen.
