Prayer to Saint Anthony of Padua
Holy Saint Anthony, gentle and powerful in your help, 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 always ready to request for those in trouble or anxiety.
Encouraged by this thought, we implore you to obtain for us a worthy Catholic college to serve the Catholics of the Bay Area.
The answer to our prayer may require a miracle. Even so, you are the Saint of miracles. Gentle and loving Saint Anthony, whose heart is ever full of human sympathy, take our petition to the Infant Savior for whom you have such a great love, and the gratitude of our hearts will ever be yours.
