St. Anthony of Padua Comments

Saint Anthony was canonized (declared a saint) less than one year after his death. There is perhaps no more loved and admired saint in the Catholic Church than Saint Anthony of Padua, a Doctor of the Church. Though his work was in Italy, he was born in Portugal. He first joined the Augustinian Order and then left it and joined the Franciscan Order in 1221, when he was 26 years old. The reason he became a Franciscan was because of the death of ...

    St. Anthony of Padua, Glorious for your miracles And for the condescension of Jesus In coming as a little child to repose in your arms, obtain for me from his bounty the grace which I ardently desire.
    You who were so compassionate towards sinners, regard not my unworthiness, but the glory of God, that it may be magnified by you in connection with the particular request which I now earnestly present to you. Please hear my petition for a healthy baby boy.
    As a pledge of my gratitude, I beg you to accept my promise to live more faithfully in accordance with the teachings of the Church, and to be devoted to the service of the poor whom you loved and still love so greatly.
    Bless this my resolution, that I may be faithful to it even until death.
    St. Anthony, consoler of all the afflicted, Pray for me.
    St. Anthony, whom the infant Jesus so much loved and honored, Pray for me.
    Amen.

    From all the comments I've read, it seems to me like St. Anthony is very busy. But if you can spare some of your charity and love, please, St. Anthony intercede on my behalf and ask the baby Jesus to help me stay grounded and to overcome the sorrow of all the things that went wrong in my 23 years and to find the strength to overcome my depression, anxiety, panic attacks and fear of conversation and people. I don't know how it became this bad, but I know God only gives us crosses we can bear. Sometimes it feels like too much however. If anyone else reads this and also suffers similarily, then I'd like to suggest they also pray to The Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, St. Francis of Assissi, St. Dymphna (who's patron saint of mental afflictions) and most of all to the holy Trinity who gave us all these wonderful friends who pray for us unceasingly. Love you so much St. Anthony, even though I've just met you recently. I'm very grateful to you already.

    Please St Anthony interceded for me. Ask Jesus to let Julie and me get together so we can marry. We loved each other so much. I don't know what happened to her but let her see the love in her heart for me. Thanks for favors granted.
