The Miraculous Responsory or “Si Quaeris”


This prayer of praise in honor of St. Anthony was composed by St. Bonaventure.  It is sung frequently in the Basilica of St. Anthony in Padua and every Tuesday throughout the world.



If miracles thou fain would see,
Lo, error, death, calamity.
The leprous stain, the demon flies,
from beds of pain the sick arise. 


The hungry seas forego their prey,
The prisoner's cruel chains give way;
While palsied limbs and chattels lost
Both young and old recovered boast.


And perils perish, plenty's hoard,
Is heaped on hunger's famished board;
Let those relate who know it well,
Let Padua of her patron tell.


The hungry seas forego their prey,
The prisoner's cruel chains give way;
While palsied limbs and chattels lost
Both young and old recovered boast.


To Father, Son, may glory be
And Holy Spirit, eternally. 


Pray for us, blessed Anthony.
Make us worthy of the promises of Christ.


Let us pray.
Lord God, may the votive commemoration of blessed Anthony, your Confessor and Doctor, be a source of joy for your people.  May they always be strengthened with his spiritual assistance and deserve eternal rewards.  Through Christ our Lord. Amen
