Thank You St. Anthony For Your Intersession

Here are a few thank you's to St. Anthony that the blog has received from readers recently:

Dear St. Anthony. Thank you so much for returning my lost locket to me, with the blessed remains of my late dog Max in it. I searched high and wide, but prayed to you, and my precious locket has been returned to me, thanks to your intervention. I will forever thank you, give glory to your name, and just know my saints are always with me. Thank you so much for your help. Please give me the grace to help and pass on your truly wonderful works, as Jesus has given you. I thank you so much from all my heart, and soul for this. Blessed are you dear Saint Anthony.

I believe that Jesus has all his special people. Thank You so much St. Anthony, not just for returning my locket to me, but it did happen! And I have so much faith that whatever Jesus wants to happen, will. But please send Him A REALLY BIG THANK YOU! It's by your intercession, and God's grace, not only did I get my locket back, but it restored my faith, which is a way better present then anything of this world could be. I never doubt Jesus, or his saints. My thoughts, praise, and thank you. You guys are totally awesome! Hope to walk with you all, someday. Love forever in the faith and words of Jesus Christ. Amen.

I was in desperate state for weeks trying to find my Rosary. I asked St. Anthony for his intersession and in three hours my wife called to tell me she has found them. Thank You St. Anthony for your intersession.

I am 13 and I lost my glasses lens - I looked for it for an hour or less, maybe thirty minutes. I typed in a prayer to find thing on the internet and I found one. After finding the prayer I started to sing it and praise to St. Anthony. After I stopped, 10 seconds later I found my glasses lens! It's a miracle!

For years and years St. Anthony has been my helper and my children's when something is lost or just misplaced...We love him so much and I know I look forward to seeing him in Heaven.

If you would like us to post your own thanks to St. Anthony on our blog, send us an email~

Saint Anthony Quote - The Grace To Overcome Pride

“Let us beseech Jesus Christ, dearest brethren, Who with His humility defeated diabolical pride, that He may grant us the grace to overcome pride and haughtiness of heart with humility, and to show in our attitude a sincere humility, in order thus to reach His glory: by the grace of He Who is the Blessed One for all eternity. Amen!”
~St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony's Comment Box Quotes - I Seldom Misplace Things

I seldom misplace things, recently I looked for my grandmothers rosary and was in panic to see it gone from its place on my jewelry stand! I prayed to St. Anthony to help me find it. Within minutes I thought I should check my safe. Strangely, the rosary was there! But not only it. A tiny icon of St. Anthony was nestled in the cloth bag with the rosary. It was also my grandmother's and I had not thought about or seen the icon for at least a year. Thank you St. Anthony for helping me find the rosary and YOU! If anyone has trouble believing in the saints, please share this story.

Our thanks to Rachel on Catholic Online for sharing her Saint Anthony story - St. Anthony really is a friend, ready to help whenever we ask.

Si Quaeris Miracula - If You Seek Miracles

"Si quaeris miracula" are the first words in Latin (translated: If you seek miracles) with which perhaps the most well-known prayer in honor of St. Anthony, the Miraculous Responsory of Saint Anthony, begins.
Set to music, the text dates back to Fr. Giuliano da Spira who composed it in 1235, as the Responsory of the Liturgy of the Hours for the Feast of Saint Anthony of Padua. Listen and enjoy~
