St. Joseph.  Patron of Father's.

"The angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph and said: Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife:  she will give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus."

Pray for the gift of blessed fatherhood for all the father's in the world.

Doctor of the Church.  Wonder worker.  Patron of the poor and lost things.

     O holy St. Anthony, gentlest of saints, 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 ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety.  Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (mention the request).  The answer to my prayer may require a miracle; even so, you are the Saint of Miracles.  O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the sweet Infant Jesus, Who loved to be folded in your arms; and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.  Amen.

St. Anthony, pray for us.

Oh most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you, and with lively sorrow for my sins I offer you this poor heart of mine.  Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to your will.  Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you.  Protect me in the midst of danger.  Comport me in my afflictions.  Give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.
