St. Anthony Does Wonders

St. Anthony does wonders and I am really grateful to have him as my patron saint. I have lost things in the past and he has helped me to find it. Ten days ago we noticed an important document of my son's missing. I have been praying to St. Anthony. Finally my husband and I decided to apply for a duplicate document since we were running out of time, but I still knew that he will help me. There were so many formalities required for a duplicate document. So I very fervently prayed last evening and requested him to pleeease help me. Last night after dinner when I went to my son's room, my eyes fell on a box of his last years text books and I said, "yes, it should be in that box, I have searched every other place." I said a last prayer to St. Anthony that the document should be in the box. I took out everything from the box and was disappointed that I did not find it, then put back each book carefully and to my great excitement, it was there. I am so thrilled and going to give thanks to him personally today. To my good luck, his relic is in my city Bangalore in India. Thank you once again St. Anthony. Yours in Christ Jesus.

I Had Almost Given Up

I had misplaced my social security and green card two days ago. I searched everywhere for it but it was nowhere to be found. Last night as I was about to sleep I searched for a prayer for a lost item on google and found the Saint Anthony prayer, I screened shot it and decided to recite it the next morning. I read the prayer out loud as I searched for my lost item; I had almost given up when I decided to look for it at a very unusual spot and lo and behold there lies my lost item. Thank God for Saint Anthony!
