St. Anthony of Padua 

Patron of our Cathedral

Beloved St. Anthony of Padua, Patron of the lost and Faithful son of St. Francis, intercede for me as I walk through this world seeking the will of God for my life and the peace that comes from surrendering myself into His loving arms. Beseech Our Lord, whom you briefly held here on earth and who now holds you eternally, to restore all that has been lost in my life and all that sin has taken from me. Please pray for me that I might be set on fire for the beauty of the Word of God as you were and that the words of the Lord Jesus Christ be my very life's breath. Help me, O dear Saint Anthony, to lose myself in the eternal embrace of the Holy Trinity and so be found in the love that enlivens the heavens.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen

St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

St. Clare

O glorious Saint Clare!

God has given you the power of working miracles continually, and the favor of answering the prayers of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety, and distress; we beseech you, obtain for us from Jesus, through Mary, His Blessed Mother, what we beg of you so fervently and hopefully, if it be for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our souls.

Saint Clare Pray For Us!


Think about, we are all the human family and in need of Love, not hatred. May we all understand the ultimate source of our Existence that we are created equal by a loving God.
