Come, blessed of my Father, for I was ill and you came to visit me. Amen, I say to you; as often as you did this for the least of my brothers, you did it to me.

O God, rich in mercy, You inspired Saint Brother Albert to see the wounded image of Your Son in the poor, the homeless and the destitute. Motivated by his example and prayers may we become true brothers and sisters to all who are in need.

Saint Anthony of Padua

Loving God, upon this day
St Anthony of Padua detail.jpg
Sing we all in joyful praise:
Anthony, your faithful son,
On this day has heaven won.
He, the preacher of the Word,
Lived in deed the truth he heard;
Called by martyr's death to be
Vowed to holy poverty.
Lord, accept the hymns we raise,
Singing Anthony's holy praise!
Faithful friar, in Francis' step
Bids us go where he has led,
Drawn by him, we offer laud
To Christ Jesus, Son of God.
Fearless teacher of the way,
Guiding us to work and pray,
Through his never-ceasing prayer
Leads us Christ-ward ev'rywhere.
Lord, accept the hymns we raise,
Singing Anthony's holy praise!
To the Father and the Son
And the Spirit, Three-in-One,
Hymns of glory, songs of love
Sing we, echoing those above.
With the angels' chorus high
Earth now makes this joyful cry;
With Saint Anthony we sing,
Praising God, our heav'nly King.
Lord, accept the hymns we raise,
Singing Anthony's holy praise!

77 77 D; MENDELSSOHN, (or, without refrain, SALZBURG)

Lord, my allotted portion and my cup, it is You who hold fast my lot. For me the measuring lines have fallen on pleasant sites; fair indeed is my inheritance.

God our Father, through contemplative prayer You ignited the flame of love deep in the heart and soul of blessed Florida; and taught blessed Jolenta to choose the lowly cross of Your Son in place of worldly honors and riches. Through their merits and prayers enable us to look rightly on perishable things and with sincere hearts to seek the things of heaven.

St Felix Amoroso of Nicosia.jpgLord, my portion and my cup, You hold my lot secure; I keep the Lord before me always, for with him at my right hand nothing can shake or disturb me.

Lord, You taught Brother Felix of Nicosia to serve You in humility and simplicity, and to be attentive to the greater things. Grant that we may share in his glory in heaven.
