Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

At the conclusion, pray the Miraculous Repository by Saint Bonaventure
If miracles thou fain would see, Lo, error, death calamity. The leprous stain, the demon flies, from beds of pain the sick arise. The hungry seas forgo their prey, the prisoner's cruel chains give way, While palsied limbs and 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 on her patron tell. The hungry seas forgo their prey, the prisoner's cruel chains give way, While palsied limbs and chattels lost, both young and old recovered boast. Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. The hungry seas forgo their prey, the prisoner's cruel chains give way, While palsied limbs and chattels lost, both young and old recovered boast. Pray for us, blessed Anthony that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
O God, let the votive commendation 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.
