Come To Him In Devotion

I am here to thank St. Anthony for what he did for me in the past.
Towards the end of 2014 I bought a laptop, but it was stolen within 3 months. Though I had someone I suspected, he never agreed that he stole the laptop, especially as there was no proof. I was awfully sad. I was not financially stable enough to get another one yet. The same day, I prayed to St. Anthony starting from midnight until day break, at one hour intervals. You wouldn’t believe that in the morning, the thief confessed to stealing the laptop and returned it to me. I couldn’t even believe my eyes. Miracles truly happen I thought to myself, and I was so grateful. I forgave the thief and thanked St. Anthony. I also tried to spread the story so that others can come to him in devotion. I’m sending this mail using the same laptop.
Thank you St. Anthony of Padua.

Thank you J.S. for your story of trust and perseverance in prayer. Have a St. Anthony story of your own to share, one that can inspire others to come to devotion in St. Anthony also? Email it to us and we will post it on our blog~

I Know It Was A Miracle

Yesterday afternoon I was looking for my card case where I keep my credit card, ATM card and my drivers license but could not find it. But I was sure it was just within the confines of my room. Ultimately I asked my househelp to look for it too. We put out all the bags I could have possibly used two days before. But I remember very clearly that I prepared the bag I was going to use the next day, removing some items including the card case because it was adding weight to my bag. As we inspected all the bags I was visualizing putting out the card case and leaving it on the dresser, inside drawers and inside another bag that I was not going to use. After a futile hour or so we gave up. Then I took an image of St. Anthony and through You Tube I found an appropriate prayer to ask St. Anthony’s help recovering my lost card case. Even as I pray I was figuring out how St. Anthony will do it. I said to myself, if St Anthony was going to help me, it will be by a miracle. And he surely did a miracle! The next morning I was having breakfast when all of a sudden I thought of going through the particular bag I was preparing to use the next day. Lo and behold St. Anthony did a miracle. He put the card case in a zippered pocket of the bag. If it was there the night before, I could not have missed it because I was emptying it and I was tapping it on all sides for bulges that could easily be felt. I know it was a miracle, thank you Lord and thank you St Antony. I have no doubt recovering my lost card case had to be a miracle. Amen.

Thank you D.A. for your miraculous story of Good St. Anthony's help. Have a St. Anthony story of your own to share? Email it to us and we will post it on our blog to inspire others to ask for his intercession too~
