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 ...

    St. Anthony you've always been so gracious to me, thank you. I ask that you reconcile the marriage of my beloved brother to his wife. You know their issues please strengthen their marriage and help them see that the only way to a solid marriage is by having Jesus Christ in the center of it. I also ask for another beloved couple in my family. I pray that you reconcile and rekindle the love they have for each other. Please intercede for them. Thank you St. Anthony for all that you've done and continue to do. Amen.

    St. Anthony, Happy Feast Day! I recall, with much love and happiness, that I have visited the Church in Lisbon, where you were baptised, Padua and Rimini where you lived and preached. During my early childhood, I remember being present at St. Anthony's Church. Most of all I remember my late mother's devotion to you.She used to call you "teacher". Many in our community also referred lovingly to your tonsure. How blessed are you have Jesus come to you as a little baby and rest in your arms. St Anthony, you are a great preacher and miracle worker. On your feast day please answer all my requests, my heart's longings, my yearnings. You know them all before I say it. Help me dear Saint on your feast-day. Give me the confidence and faith that you will obtain the favours that I seek. I want to praise God for all the countless blessings He has showered on me, in this period of my life, (technically called old age), which I never dreamed would be given to me. Amen.

    Dear Saint Anthony, please help me to be in control of what I say as i notice my words go awry and always hurt others. I have lost so much from the things I said and I pray that you intercede for me to say few if I must communicate. I also pray for those that were hurt by me. Help me to be discipline, confident and have faith in all that I do. Help me to find peace and not to be seen as arrogant and heavy handed-you know I am not. I join my petition with those of my brethren believing that you will present our humble requests before our Lord.
    I pray for my family -for the strength to do my best for them, help us to have the right attitude and help each other without bearing grudges which i think they learnt from me. Help us to have better self esteem.
    I pray for a job and I have an interview coming tomorrow! Please help me with it.
    The answer to my prayers will require a miracle and you are a saint of miracles. I promise to give back to the poor whom you loved so much. Thank you ever so much for all you have shown and done for me so far.

    Dear St. Anthony, I prayed that you would intercede for me and help me find my special hair comb. Before I went to bed I recited 13 Our Father's, 13 Hail Mary's and 13 Glory Be's. I believed it had been done by you. The next morning I told my husband and glory be I walked right over to the top of the refrigerator and found it. Thanks be to God and his Saint Anthony for showing me where it was. I will honor and acknowledge your miracles throughout my entire life. Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Thank you Jesus for showing me the way. Thank you Saint Anthony for working this miracle for me.
