The Chaplet of Saint Anthony

This chaplet is composed of 13 decades of 3 beads each On the first bead of each decade is said the 'Our Father', on the second bead is said the 'Hail Mary', and on the third bead is said the 'Glory be to the Father'. At the end, the Miraculous Responsory is recited. The Miraculous Responsoryby Saint Bonaventure Instead of the Our Father say: 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 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 forego their prey, The prisoner's cruel chains give way; While palsied limbs and chattels lost Both young and old recovered boast. Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son, Glory to the Holy Ghost. 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. 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.
