A prayer of St. Anthony of Padua

We ask you then, Our Lady,
that as you are the morning star,
you may by your splendor drive away
the cloud of the devil's suggestions
which cover the earth of our minds.

Do you, who are the full moon,
fill our emptiness and scatter the darkness of our sins,
so that we may be able to come to the fullness of eternal life,
to the light of unending glory.

May he grant this,
who brought you forth to be our light,
who made you to be born,
that he might be born of you.

To him be honor and glory for ever and ever.
