A Niche for Saint Anthony

We regularly call on Saint Anthony for help because we are regularly losing things. Last year we went to a yard sale and found a type of ‘niche’ (for a religious statue) at this sale. The seller said we could just have it for free! We went to a local garden center and found a statue. It was marked as St. Francis and ‘identified’ by another person as St. Joseph, but it was St. Anthony. When we got it home I looked up his feast day and, lo and behold, that very day was Saint Anthony's feast day!
