Saint Anthony's Brief - A Powerful Prayer Against The Powers Of Evil

Thousands make a practice of wearing on their persons a copy of the famous Brief of St. Anthony, in order to gain his powerful protection against dangers to soul and body.

Tradition from the 14th. century relates that a woman in Lisbon, Portugal, was tempted by the devil to take her life. She had a dream in which she heard comforting words from St. Anthony, and on awakening discovered this prayer. She used this prayer, known today as "St. Anthony's Brief [or Blessing]," to overcome temptations. The Church once incorporated this prayer against the powers of evil in its ritual for an exorcism.
I myself recently purchased this cross with St. Anthony's Brief inscribed on the back.
