Prayer: Anthony of Padua

Just as God is compassionate towards you in a three-fold way, so ought you to show compassion toward others in three ways. God's compassion is gracious, specious, and precious.

It is gracious, that is, grace-filled, because it purifies the soul of vice.

It is specious because with the passage of time it extends itself to good works.

It is precious in the joys of eternal life.
