The Miraculous Responsory
If miracles thou fain wouldst see Do, error, death, calamity, The leprous stain, the demon flies, From beds of pain the sick arise.
The hungry seas forego their prey, The prisoner's cruel chains give way; While palsied limbs and chattels lost, Both young and old recovered boast.
And perils perish; plenty's hoard Is heaped on hunger's famished board; Let those relate who know it well, Let Padua of her patron tell.
The hungry seas, etc. Glory be to the Father, etc. The hungry seas, etc.
V. Pray for us Blessed Anthony. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let Us Pray O God! Let the votive commemoration of Blessed Anthony, thy Confessor, be a source of joy to thy Church, that she may always be fortified with spiritual assistance, and may deserve to possess eternal joy. Through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
"The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description." - Archbishop Fulton Sheen
