“Love of neighbor, grounded in the love of God, is first and foremost a responsibility for each individual member of the faithful, but it is also a responsibility for the entire ecclesial community at every level: from the local community to the particular Church and to the Church universal in its entirety….Love thus needs to be organized if it is to be an ordered service to the community.”
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
Deus Caritas Est, 20
ADMINISTRATION: Stewards of His Love

The Church is not an institution, but a Body, a communion of persons. At St. Anthony's, this reality is reflected in the way we approach the stewardship of the Lord's life and love. In communion with Cardinal Wuerl, the bishops, Pope Francis and the Universal Church, we are called to lead, manage and make prayerful decisions for the good of all.

Thanksgiving Prayer to St. Anthony

Most loving protector, St. Anthony, what gift can I give you in exchange to show my heartfelt gratitude? With your continued help I will show appreciation to you by being more faithful to God, more constant in prayer, and readier to do good to those nearest me....May these intentions convey my great thanks to the triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and to our blessed Lady, Queen of heaven and earth.

Prayer for the Church

O Mary, powerful Virgin, you are the mighty and glorious protector of the Church; you are the marvelous help of Christians; you are terrible as an army set in battle array; you alone have destroyed every heresy in the whole world. In the midst of our anguish, our struggles and our distress, defend us from the power of the enemy and at the hour of our death receive our souls in paradise. Amen.

-St. John Bosco (1818-1888)
