Novena Prayer to St Anthony of Padua

O Holy St Anthony, gentlest of Saints your love for God and Charity for his creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to obtain for me (request). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the Saint of Miracles. O gentle and loving St Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms; and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.

To Obtain Some Special Favor

Glorious St Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you, and with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present affair which I recommend to you under your special protection.

Cease not to interced for me until my request is granted. (here ask for favor you wish to obtain.)

Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face, and with You and Mary and all the saints, praising and blessiing Him through all eternity. Amen

My heart feels so heavy, goose bumps all over my body while reading all the prayers from other members.I hope the families of the victims share with me this Irish prayer for the dead.

I saw this prayer stuck on a wall in a small Catholic chapel in Colrane, Northern Ireland where the attacks between Catholics and Protestants have escalated once again.

"May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
The rainfalls soft upon your field
May God hold you in the palm of his hand."

9/21/2001 23:41

I pray for all the innocent victims who died in the WTC. May our Loving Shepherd lead them as a shepherd leads his sheep. The Word says, "Suffer little children, for such is the Kingdom of God." May their little souls rest in peace and may His light shine upon those angels. Amen
