Happy Feast of St. Anthony!!!

Happy Feast of St. Anthony!!!

Prayer to St. Anthony
Anthony, through your teaching and preaching you have bore witness to the loving presence of God in all of creation.  Now that you have come into the fullness of the kingdom, pray for us that our lives might also proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to all humanity.

Pray for us St. Anthony......Help us become worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us Pray:  Almighty, eternal God, you have given your people St. Anthony as an outstanding preacher and intercessor in times of need.  Grant that with his help we may follow the example of Christian living and experience your support in all adversities.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Not only is today the Patronal Feast Day of the province of the friars to which I belong, but it is also the day that my blog site officially is up and running.  Welcome and enjoy!  More to come...
