St. Anthony of Padua, Doctor of the Church, “Hammer of Heretics”

No Catholic who takes the salvation of his immortal soul seriously can ignore the intercessory power of Saint Anthony of Padua. Over and above all of the little things we ask Saint Anthony to find after we have lost them, Saint Anthony of Padua, an exemplary preacher of the truths of the Catholic Faith, must be invoked today in our times under one of his most important titles, “The Hammer of Heretics.”

We may wonder at the zeal that consumed St. Anthony to proclaim the truth of Christ Jesus among the dangerous heretics, but it is no wonder that his zeal and authentic love for and service to Jesus have remained as a legacy behind him, earning him the title of thaumaturge, wonder-worker. St. Anthony, holy friar, Hammer of the Heretics, pray for us.

We need Saint Anthony’s help right now in the midst of the difficulties within Holy Mother Church, so that each of us will be fortified by our hidden time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, and our unabashed expressions of love for the Holy Name of Mary to proclaim the truths of the true Faith openly in the midst of the heretics in the counterfeit church of conciliarism who want to convince us that everything about the Catholic Church prior to the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, must be rejected and vilified and apologized for.

Although Saint Anthony is a saint for all days and for all ages, he is particularly apt to help Holy Mother Church in these our days, rife as they are with all of the synthesized heresies that have amalgamated themselves under the aegis of Modernism.

Saint Anthony is especially powerful against the demons that torment us in life, seeking to deter us from persevering on the path to sanctity. The Saint Anthony’s Brief is thus a particularly potent prayer to recite, and to keep on one’s very person at all times:

Ecce Crucem Domine,
Fugite, partes adversae,
Vicit Leo de Tribu Juda,
Radix David, alleluia.
 Latin crossBehold the Cross of the Lord!
Flee ye adversaries!
The Lion of the Tribe of Juda,
The Root of David has conquered, alleluia!

The Miraculous Resoponsory of Saint Anthony

If then you ask for miracles, Death, error, all calamities, Leprosy and demons fly, And health succeeds infirmities. The sea obeys and fetters break, And lifeless limbs you do restore; While treasures lost are found again, When young and old your aid implore. All dangers vanish at your prayer, And direst need does quickly flee; Let those who know your power proclaim. Let Paduans say: these are yours. To Father, Son, may glory be And Holy Ghost, eternally. Pray for us Blessed Anthony. Make us worthy of the promises of Christ.

Oremus:

O my God, may the pious commemoration of Saint Anthony, Thy Confessor and Proctor, give joy to Thy Church, that she may ever be fortified with your spiritual assistance and merit to attain everlasting joy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Memorare of Saint Anthony

Remember, O thou miracle-working Saint, that it never was heard that thou hast left without help or relief anyone who in his need had recourse to thee. Animated with the most lively confidence, nay, even with full conviction of not being refused, I fly for refuge to thee, O most favoured and blessed friend of the Infant Jesus! O eloquent preacher of the Divine mercies, despise not my supplications, but, bringing them before the Throne of God, strengthen them by thine intercession, and obtain for me what I ask – help and consolation in my need, O most glorious miracle-working  St. Anthony. Amen.
