I Was Pretty Sure It Was A Hopeless Case

Here is a recent story from one of our readers:

I can't begin to count how many times he has helped me and my family. The most recent being when I noticed that my diamond was missing from my wedding ring, which I have had for 25 years. I had already been down working in my large vegetable garden that morning, and had also stood for about 20 minutes on my friends gravel driveway, chatting after dropping my son off to spend the day on their farm with her 2 boys. I was pretty sure it was a hopeless case because I did not have any idea of when it had fallen out. I still asked St. Anthony for his help. I then took my shoes off to walk around the house to see if I would step on it. I did. It's now back in my ring, where it belongs. I can't wait to meet him in Heaven. He may be tired of me though. I do talk with him an awful lot.

Lost And Found Health

My right hip joint was in so much pain that normal duties around the house were becoming difficult to attend to. I was unable to fold my leg without excruciating pain in my hip. I had even started using my left leg to get into my bed instead of the usual right one. One day at around 3:00am in the morning I woke up due to the extreme pain, and could no longer sleep. In the midst of it all I was browsing for a miracle testimony about St. Anthony finding a spouse for someone. I went to different sites and was reading about the miracles on your blog, and discovered that you also can petition for other needs. While still in bed I folded my leg and a very sharp pain shot up. Shortly thereafter I stretched it out, and realized the pain was gone for good. In disbelief I jumped out of bed with hesitation that it was just for a moment. Thankfully this healing was real, and the pain has been gone for more than a month now. This is real and now I believe in St. Anthony miracles 100%, because my leg is pain free.

I Was Desperately Searching For A Job

The greatest amount of visitors to our blog come here to find prayer for employment. Here is an uplifting email from blog reader M.F. who shows us that with perseverance, and prayer to Saint Anthony, the right new job can be found:

Hi, I just wanted to share my story with all the readers of this blog. My company was closing down and I was desperately searching for a job. Through this site I found a St. Anthony Novena To Find Employment. I prayed 2 consecutive novenas but nothing happened and there seemed no job opportunities on the horizon. I knew St. Anthony would never let me down and I continued praying, knowing in my heart that when the right job came along Saint Anthony would give it to me. Rightly enough, a couple of weeks after my first Novena I got through an interview with a company located only 5 minutes from home, and they wanted me to start immediately. Thank you St. Anthony for everything, I am so blessed.

Short Prayers To Saint Anthony

Here is a collection of short prayers to Saint Anthony:

Saint Anthony, great wonder-worker, intercede for us that God may grant us our request, if it be for the good of our soul.

Saint Anthony, be our patron, our protector, and our advocate in life and in death.

Saint Anthony, attentive to those who invoke thee, grant us the aid of thy powerful intercession for the grace of holy purity, meekness, humility, obedience, the spirit of poverty, and perfect abandonment to the will of God.

Saint Anthony, servant of Mary, obtain for us greater devotion to the blessed Mother of God.

Although St. Anthony’s feast day is June 13th, his aid can be invoked at any time. Let us try to emulate this devoted servant of Our Lord in our love of God and neighbor~

St. Anthony Quote - The Preaching Of Heretics

“The preaching of heretics is impure in comparison with the most pure teachings of the Church… They resemble a beast named Iamia, which has the face of a human and the body of an animal. They, in fact, in order to deceive more easily, show themselves with an amiable appearance saying courteous words, but beneath they are hiding their bad intentions.”
~St. Anthony of Padua
