Dear St. Anthony,
comforting the sorrowful is a Christian duty
and a work of mercy.
By word, attitude, and deed
I should try to brighten their days
and make their burden easier to bear.
St. Anthony, Consoler of the Afflicted,
may I remember when helping someone in sorrow
that I am helping Christ Himself.
Kindly mention my pressing needs to Him.
