Dear Saint Anthony,
Bless and protect my family; keep it united in love, sustain it in its everyday needs, and keep it safe from evil.
Bless me and my husband (my wife): help us to live with dignity through the fruits of our work so that we may have the opportunity to raise and educate the children that the Lord has given us. Bless our children: keep them healthy and eager for goodness, help them to study and do not allow them to lose their faith and their purity during the many occasions of evil in everyday life.
Help us to understand our children and to guide them through our words and our example so that they may always aspire to the most noble ideals of life and be able to implement their human and Christian vocation.
