Dear Saint Anthony,
once again I greet you and thank you
for your readiness to come to my aid in my necessity.
Slowly, but surely, my disposition improves.
You have helped me to understand
that my real fault lay in pride,
preoccupation with myself,
and lack of real concern for others.
Now that I see this more clearly,
thanks be to God,
I am not as bad as I was
nor do I feel so hopeless.
You used your tongue to give praise to God,
to preach His message of salvation,
and to call down the blessings of heaven on others.
Please continue to help me
so that I may use my tongue rightly,
be kind and charitable in speaking to others,
and cheer them rather than wound them.
Because of your powerful intercession with God,
I am confident that you will continue to assist me in my daily life.
In the name of our Lord, Jesus, I ask your aid.
V. Pray for us, Saint Anthony,
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
