Saint-Anthony-the-AbbotDear God in Heaven, Saint Anthony the Abbot renounced the world to attach himself only to You.  I ask for his prayers in my process of growing more in love with You.  Help me to deny myself and detach from this world.  I also lift up to his prayers all the people I know who are addicted to alcohol, drugs, human relationships, work, money, physical beauty and other enticements of the world.  Remove their crutches, Father, so that they fall into Christ’s healing hands.  Holy Spirit, make it plainly obvious that everything that is not of You is really harmful and a poor substitute for Divine Love.  Saint Anthony, pray for us.  Amen.
