Devotion of 13 Tuesdays in honour of
St. Anthony




NINTH TUESDAY

Introductory Prayer
Meditation

Fetters are broken

1. Great was the compassion of Saint Anthony for those who were in prison. He not only strove to console and comforts them in a thousand ways, but he was frequently the cause of their being freed from their confinement, and released from their fetters. On more than one occasion he worked stupendous miracles in order to obtain the release of the innocent.

2. Many are the bonds and chains which fetter us in our journey through life. Such for instance is human respect which tyrannizes over us; we are bound with the chains of disordered passions, which impede the freedom of our liberty in following the path of virtue; there are the chains of bad companions, who drag us from good and bind us to things which are evil. There are the chains of sins and bad habits, which change us into veritable slaves of vice. And yet we say that we are lovers of liberty, and allow ourselves voluntarily to be kept in bondage by such cruel tyrants.

3. Oh! May Saint Anthony break the degrading bonds of our souls, even as he broke the bonds of those who were imprisoned. How happy we should be! Let us do our part, and we shall gain the victory by the help of Saint Anthony. Where there is spirit of God there is true liberty.

Meditate for a while on these truths and then recite the Our Father,

Hail Mary and Glory be.

Here ask the grace which you desire to receive.
