St. Anthony of Padua Comments

Saint Anthony was canonized (declared a saint) less than one year after his death.

Special thanks to St Anthony ! The Log book was found today.Never lose hope, and be encouraged, our God is an Awesome God, full of Mercy & Grace. Blessed be the name of our Lord.

    St. Anthony, Patron of Lost articles. I've prayed to St. Anthony for a lifetime when things were lost and he always came through-except in 1974-1976-but someone pointed out there was a gas crisis then. Hmmmm. Maybe he couldn't get here to help me!

    Very absorbing article. I know he's up there in popularity and you can see his chapel and boxes for the poor at St. Francis of Assisi Church, NYC.

    Even thought I call his name I did not know much about him too bad that he died at an early age. One day I was looking for a St Anthony prayer booklet that I had for a long time and could not find it and said St Anthony help me find it, and he led me a computer bag pocket. And found it. Now I am using it every day.

    I believe Saint Anthony is the best saint in Catholic history. My mom once told me that if i lose anything that is worth important to me then ask Saint Anthony will help. In fact, last night after mass ended, i got up from the pew and headed home. I searched for my Catholic prayer beads, they were never with me at all. So i'm guessing that they might be at in the sacristy or at the rectory. Saint Anthony, patron saint of lost and found, please help me find my lost catholic prayer beads. Thank you. Amen.

    Dear St Anthony of Padua, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the favours you have obtained and continue to obtain for me through your most powerful intercessions to our loving Father in Heaven from whom all good things come. I sincerely pray that my son Aaron's MRI report to come normal and grant him good health. Be with him and protect him from all dangers. Let him grow as a normal healthy kid. You love small children, keep your hand on my sons Adrian and Aaron.

    Dear St Anthony, it still puzzles me how i got to know about you considering that i'm about to lose the most important possession in my life. I come to you today asking that you help me get back my love(Meluleki Sibanda) as the devil is doing all he can to destroy what we have built over the years, whisper my prayer to the sweet infant who loved to be carried in your arms, Amen
