Prayer to St. Anthony (elderly)

St. Anthony of Padua stained glass

O loving St. Anthony, patron saint of the elderly, I ask your special prayers for (name person) and all elderly people.  

Pray, beloved saint, that they are grateful for the years they have lived, content with their place in life, have hearts and minds that are full of happy memories and thankful thoughts, that they are blessed with good health, and that they are examples of Christian living for all they love and meet.

Please pray that if they are tested with illness, suffering, loneliness, or the death of loved ones that they be blessed with God’s peace and comfort, strength and courage.

And when their time comes to enter into eternal life, I pray you welcome them into Heaven where along with you they might praise God forever and ever.   Amen.
