St. Anthony of Padua Comments

Saint Anthony was canonized (declared a saint) less than one year after his death. There is perhaps no more loved and admired saint in the Catholic Church than Saint Anthony of Padua, a Doctor of the Church. Though his work was in Italy, he was born in Portugal.

    I pray for continued health, happiness and success for my family and loved ones. I pray for all who are suffering on this planet and who feel abandoned or have lost faith, may you touch their hearts and minds and let them know they are not alone and have your love, I pray for all the children in the world, may they be shown love, patience and kindness, especially those who are abused or alone. I pray that the people on this planet learn tolerance and compassion for each other so that we can live in a peaceful manner. I pray for strong, truthful leaders to make this world a better place for all. I pray that wars end. I pray that men and women respect each other. I pray that my health improves and my problems disappear and never return or be remembered. AMEN!!

    St. Anthony, you are a true servant of God. When Jesus was faced with the tempter he overcame the power of the devil through the scriptures, you are know as a preacher, teach me the love of God through the love of the scriptures that I may be purified from my sins and the snares of the devil. May this purity lead me to the service of Christ through God's word.

    Pray for me and for all your devotee's.

    Dear St Anthony,
    For 33 years my mother has said a Novena prayer every Tuesday. I have taken over this prayer for a couple of years now. You have continued to watch over my family and guide us from all harms, you have answered the little requests I ask for. I am devoted to you and will continue to say my weekly Tuesday prayers and I ask you give me a sign, any kind to HELP ME bear a child. I am on my last dosage of Fertility meds. Our insurance won't cover it the next one. I am a great mother to a 14 year old and my husband deserves this gift more than anything possible. Please ST Anthony help us...
