St. Anthony's Email Bag - Little Answered Prayers 1

We receive many brief stories of gratitude for Saint Anthony's help sent to us, here a few of the more recent ones:

'I was introduced to St. Anthony midway through my difficult study and I was sure I would flunk the test. But through my continuous request to St. Anthony, I was able to answer even the questions that I found difficult. Thank you, St Anthony.' -J.P.

'Two items recovered in two days after short prayer to St. Anthony. Many many thanks.' -M.H.

'I lost my ring after Mother's Day, so I prayed to St. Anthony for his help every day. Today I found my ring inside my jacket. Thank you so much my patron powerful St. Anthony for your help. God bless.' -S.S.

'I thank my husband for introducing St. Anthony to me. St. Anthony is my best friend! Tuesday becomes my lucky day, always, since I started my devotion to St. Anthony!!! We got some amazing graces from him on Tuesdays! He is our great advocate. I am now praying for my sister and myself to heal the rift. We have not seen each other for more than ten years. I am praying to St. Anthony for his support and I will let you know if I get this difficult grace.' -M.C.
Update: M.C.'s prayer for a 'difficult grace' has been answered, click here to read the story.

'Today, after many times going to court, my daughter won 50/50 custody of her daughter. Thanks be to God, St. Anthony for answering my prayers...nine day novena which ended yesterday...day before trial.' -B.M.

'I had misplaced my driver's license. I prayed this novena for 9 consecutive hours today and after an hour, I called up an office mate and he confirmed it was just on my office table. Thank you, St. Anthony, I need not go through the hassle of applying and lining up for a replacement card.' -D.T.

'My other daughter got a job offer on "Tuesday" after I went to Mass to honor St. Anthony on Tuesday for her. It is just a Christmas job but she gained some confidence from her nice bosses who encouraged her. I will be finishing on ninth Tuesday on 9th. of December for my daughter and I know St. Anthony won't let me down. I put "Thank you" card under his feet at the Church. I hope it will encourage others in distress to pray to St. Anthony for help. My heart, He is too amazing! The training tutor told my daughter that she was lucky because she was being picked out of 2,500 applicants for this Christmas job. I think they hired about less or more than 200 Christmas staff for three months. From this valuable training and experience, she may get another job in any retail easily. It was St Anthony’s doing ! Praise be to God.' -M.C.

'Thank you Saint Anthony for answering my prayers in finding my lost wrist watch. Always grateful to you.' -S.M.

And finally, from Ygnacia's youngest son: "I know I put my travel bag in the hotel drawer, and I looked there over and over and couldn't find it. I said a prayer to St. Anthony, and then I found it in the drawer, right where I had already looked so many times before."

Many people, perhaps most, will say these are all little coincidences, chance happenings. But when they happen to you personally, you know they aren't just a coincidence, you can tell the difference. So, say this popular prayer to St. Anthony the next time you can't find something: 'Good St. Anthony look around, something's lost and must be found'. And then, when you find what you were looking for, don't forget to say a little prayer of thanks~
