Saint Anthony in Antunovac

Near Lipik is a small village Antunovac founded by the noble family Jankovic. The village is located on the hilly area next to the Lake Ribnjak. This territory was originally inhabited by people of different nationalities and different religions. Today in Antunovac there is a church dedicated to St. Anthony.

Church of St. Anthony was built in 1916 and since then holy masses have been celebrated here. Church surroundings is enriched by a beautiful view of nearby green fields and the outlines of the lake.

Prayer to Saint Anthony

If, then, thou seekest miracles,
Death, error, all calamities,
The leprosy and demons flee,
The sick, by him made whole, arise.

The sea withdraws and fetters break,
And withered limbs he doth restore,
While treasures lost are found again,
When young or old his help implore.

All dangers vanish from our path,
Our direst needs do quickly flee:
Let those who know repeat the theme:
Let Paduans praise St. Anthony.

The sea withdraws...

To the Father, Son let glory be,
And Holy Ghost eternally.

The sea withdraws...

V. Pray for us, O blessed Anthony,
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Let Thy Church, O God, be gladdened by the solemn commemoration of blessed Anthony Thy Confessor: that she may be evermore defended by Thy spiritual assistance and merit to possess everlasting joy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
