Dear St. Anthony,
you recall the Gospel episode about the blind man who,
partly healed, could see men
"looking like walking trees."
After a second laying-on of Jesus's hands,
he could see perfectly.
St. Anthony, Restorer of Sight to the Blind,
please sharpen my spiritual vision.
May I see people,
not as trees or numbers,
but as sons and daughters of the Most High.
Help me in my pressing needs.
(List your needs here...)
