And since it’s the Feast of St. Anthony, here is a prayer for expectant mothers.
Prayer to St. Anthony for the Health of an Expectant Mother and Her Unborn Child
Glorious St. Anthony, you were blessed to hold the Infant Jesus in your arms. I come to you now on behalf of (Peklet Mom, et al.) who pleads for the health and safety of the child that God has graced her to conceive.
St. Anthony, guard this life God has created, and the mother God has chosen for this child. Let your gentle hand, like that of a skilled physician, aid in her delivery so that this baby will know good health and lasting happiness.
May her child be favored with the grace of holy baptism*, and grow to love our Lord Jesus Christ above all else in this world. Amen
*Obviously, the composer of the beautiful prayer believed in Limbo. I have one child who knows that truth as well…unless the conditional baptism was successful. Someday I will know the answer to that.
Thank you for your prayers!
