I Had Almost Given Up

I had misplaced my social security and green card two days ago. I searched everywhere for it but it was nowhere to be found. Last night as I was about to sleep I searched for a prayer for a lost item on google and found the Saint Anthony prayer, I screened shot it and decided to recite it the next morning. I read the prayer out loud as I searched for my lost item; I had almost given up when I decided to look for it at a very unusual spot and lo and behold there lies my lost item. Thank God for Saint Anthony!

The Franciscan Friars at the Basilica of St. Anthony in Padua, Italy, will be offering Mass and praying for those who are sick and suffering on February 11th., 2018, the World Day of Prayer for the Sick. Saint Anthony is the Saint of Miracles, and those who are sick lovingly place their trust in his intercession. If, among your family members or your friends, there is someone who is sick you may send their names, and the Friars will pray for them. You will also be able to follow the 8:00am Holy Mass on live streaming.

Isn’t It Saint Anthony?

Tonight I was at work when an elderly woman approached the desk visibly devastated and said she had lost her hearing aide and no one had time to help her look for it. I went to her room and searched for nearly an hour, her roommate encouraging me the entire time. I got on my hands and knees searching the floor, under furniture, nothing. I felt horrible as I sat at her side and explained I couldn’t find it. She was just devastated, crying openly. I said to her roommate, who do we ask to help when we can’t find something? Isn’t it Saint Anthony? She said I don’t know, but I think maybe so. So I immediately asked St Anthony to help us find my patients hearing aide. I reassured my patient that help was in the way and stood up to leave the room. I looked down as I was leaving and the hearing aide was directly in front of me on the floor! Both the lady and her roommate were overjoyed, and the three of us immediately thanked St. Anthony for his aide. I’d like to say it again. Thank you SO much Saint Anthony!!!
