Gold Medal Help

My mother was awarded a gold medal when she participated in a piano contest as a young woman. Years later, she lost the medal in Oceanside, California. I was a child then, and it seems to me that she prayed to St. Anthony for over a month.

The medal turned up in Tijuana, Mexico, and was returned by a man who recognized her maiden name on the medal. The miracle was that the medal was taken to Mexico and back, and that our family name was known in Mexico. It was all a marvel and a miracle. St. Anthony continues to help us all.
