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 ...

    Thank you dear St. Anthony for answering my prayers. As my daughter labored with her first baby I asked you to help them find their way to a healthy delivery. And, though she came close to a C-section, my prayer to you was answered and she safely delivered her precious son. Then again, as she struggled with nursing her baby, I asked you to help them find their way together. And, once more, you did. I tell everyone I can about your positive role in my life and I thank you fromt he bottom of my heart. Whenever I invoke your help, I always say that I know there are many more important losses than mine - one's health, children, financial resources - and yet you answer my prayer all the same. I envision you in another life, sitting with the ones I've loved and lost, working to help me through my difficulties. It is such a peaceful, joyful vision for me. Till next time....

    St. Anthony, please intercede on my behalf as I am going through the last fertility treatment that I can afford. The infant baby Jesus came to you. In you, St. Anthony, he saw a gentle spirit and a servant of God. Please help my husband and I to experience the love of a child of our own. Fill my womb with the miracle of a baby. Fill my heart with your love of Jesus. We are in need of a miracle. Many times I have prayed to you to help me find something that I have lost. Now, I pray to you on your Feast Day to help me find the child that is meant for me to love and raise and learn from. I have lost many years trying to have a child but I know that God has a plan for me. These years were not wasted, but filled with important lessons for me to learn. I am ready now to be a mother. I ask most humbly and simply that you help us to make that happen. In Jesus' name, I pray.

    Today on your feast day, I pray that my children may meet and marry soon, good catholic professional partners, so that they may settle down and start families. For good health in mind and body for all of us.

    Dear St Anthony,
    You who have never failed to answer my prayers I thank and Praise you for your constant Intersession for protection of me and my family. I pray for my parents especially my Mother and Sister and brothers who have so much of hatred and envy in their hearts towards me and my family. May they realise that My blessings are abundant because they are Gods gifts to us and not my own doing. I pray for strength never to hate them or bear any ill will toward them inspite of the way they treat us. May God bless them through your intersessions and open their eyes that we may all live in peace and harmony.
    Thank and Praise you my St.Anthony.

    Thank you my dear Saint Anthony de Padua, you truly are so miraculous in interceding to my Lord. You have always helped me with finding lost articles and other requests. Please help me today, dear saint with trying to forgive my children's father for abandoning us last Saturday. He got paid on Wednesday, and until today, I haven't heard a word from him. My children and I do not need to be going around his people to look for him, because I know they do not want him to come out of hiding. Whatever is keeping him from helping us, I believe stems from their being Godless and evil. Cast the devil into the deepest recess of hell dear Lord and away from me, my children and my people. Please Saint Anthony, ask God to have him help us and to stop building all this ugliness in his heart. Please also ask God to help me get a job that I will be happy and productive in. One more request and miracle if possible, that my son USMC Corporal Peter, be invisible to the enemy wherever he walks in Afghanistan and ask my dear God to bring him home physically, spiritually, mentally, safe to us back in Texas. God bless you, Saint Anthony de Padua.
