Chaplet of St. Anthony


The Chaplet of St. Anthony is composed of thirteen groups of three beads each. On the first bead of each group is said the Our Father, on the second the Hail Mary and on the third the Glory Be. At the end the miraculous responsory is recited:

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 votive commemoration of Blessed Anthony, thy Confessor, be a source of joy to thy Church, that she may always be fortified with spiritual assistance, and may deserve to possess eternal joy. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

During the prayers meditation on the following virtues of the saint is recommended: Faith, Hope, Charity, Love of Jesus, Prudence, Justice, Patience, Penance, Humility, Purity, Obedience, Poverty, Spirit of Prayer and Union with God.
