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. He first joined the Augustinian Order and then left it and joined the Franciscan Order in 1221, when he was 26 years old. The reason he became a Franciscan was because of the death of ...

    I have prayed to St. Anthony many times after I've exhausted all mundane ways of finding something and every time I have found what I was looking for, usually in plain site or so it seems.
    I remember when I was going for my confirmation my mother really wanted me to choose St. Anthony for my Patron Saint, but I being quite patriotic chose St. Andrew instead.
    As far as I know I cannot change this, and does it really matter as I can still pray to St. Anthony when I need his help which comes from God.

    Dear St. Anthony,

    I cannot explain this, but from way back, I had a very strong desire to continually pray to you even though I didn't know you very well. I only knew you were the Saint to pray to for lost things, causes, etc. My husband was named after you. He passed away four years ago. I always pray to you whenever I lose something and always... you are there to help me! And I was confused about your name. Are you called Anthony of Padua or Anthony of Lisbon? So today, I made up my mind to make a research on you and I was not disappointed. You are all that I believe you are... and more!!! Thank you for enlightening me and giving me a chance to get to know you better. You are a Saint after my own heart! I am teaching Speech and Literature at a Seminary here in Bacolod City, Philippines....way, way out in the Far East!!! I have been brought up a Catholic all my life and went to Catholic schools all my life. I have traveled to Europe and seen the places where you lived. I resided in the United States for 24 years and have also been given the gift of speaking well. May you continue to help me out in my teaching and help me inspire the Seminarians to really speak well and share God's word and God's love to everyone they come in contact with. I enjoy my job very much...but I am not a priest and can't preach and do much. But I really try to inspire the Seminarians to give out their best when they speak and talk about God. I repeat, you are certainly a Saint after my own heart! I thank God and praise Him for giving the Catholic world a wonderful saint like you! Praise the Lord!!!

    Dear St. Anthony,

    You had been kind to this humble servant over the years representing my petitions to Child Jesus, who ever loved to linger in your arms. I thank you for the favors granted to me.

    I am now hard pressed to start my family after 7 years of married life as my wife had lost both her fallopian tubes during two ectopic pregnancies. The doctors have washed their hands off for a natural conception. But my faith in you has forced me to raise this petition online so it is not just me who will be a witness to the miracle that I pray for.

    Pray for us O St. Anthony
    - Th
    at we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
