            O purest Saint Anthony, who through thy angelic virtue hast been made worthy to be caressed by Jesus, to hold Him in thy arms and press Him to thy heart: I entreat thee to cast a benevolent glance upon me, a poor sinner. By the mere touch of thy garment thou hast communicated that most precious of gifts, holy purity. Oh, deliver me by thy powerful intercession from all thoughts and actions against the holy virtue, that I may become a pleasing object in the eyes of Jesus and His Immaculate Mother.

            Pray for me that my heart and soul may remain pure and undefiled until death, and that I may rather die than offend God by mortal sin. Amen.
