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 ...

    Dear Saint,

    Pray for the Church and Pope Francis. Strengthen him with the zeal you had to proclaim Christ and be with him in his mission to root out the homolobbys from the Church, especially from Vatican. Help those bishops and priests who are chained by the devil of homosexuality. Grant them the grace to overcome their sinful nature and preach Christ and proclaim the Gospel. Assist everyone who has taken up this task of cleansing the Holy Church, The Bride of Christ, of the homo nexus and destroy their power to destroy the Church. Gift the servants of Christ your tongue to preach the Faith with Love and Hope. Bless my brothers Antony Thadeus and Antony Pius. Fill them with your love and grant them all their desires and keep them safe and sound. Bless their family too. Amen.

    Happy Feast Day, St. Anthony.
    Remembering the great things that you did and how you walked a righteous life. I pray that my life can reflect God's love. Thank you for your intercessions!
    Please continue to pray on my behalf as I ask our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ for the following:
    For the salvation of my family and their protection, for healing of my body, for favor at work and school, that I may move forward and forget past unhealthy relationships, and that I will be blessed with a godly husband. I pray for strength & wisdom. May I have the understanding that God's will in my life is more than what I could ever imagine or hope for. Lord, align my will with Yours.
    Thank you, St. Anthony. You will always be one of my most beloved saints.
    Thank you Jesus, for dying on the cross for my sins, and for your resurrection.
    Amen.

    Today is 13th June 2013,783 years after St Anthony's death. I am from Sri Lanka living in Hong Kong. Decided to go to this site remembering the date today as he is my name's saint who had saved my life when I was 2 years from a deadly attack of a Coma! Since then, my dad & mom made me to vouch my Saint every month by lighting few Candles as a honour to him and ask more faith in God through his sermons. St Anthony is my closest and dearest friend and in my family who built it to date with God's blessings.
    His teachings still remain in my ears as if I have heard it lively. It is the time now to spread his preaching to the Church from our childhood and bring it forward as they grow which I believe is our prime duty to make a good and generous society today. Today, this appreciation of St Anthony goes to the entire world since my Parents paved the way to go to God from my childhood, I am now 56 years .....

    St Anthony thank you for all you have done and continue to do. 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 the healing & restoration of my relationship with the man I loved by the same name Tony. It was Tony who brought me closer to my faith, Love of God, Mother Mary, and of course St. Anthony yourself. restore our relationship for years to come. May Tony be brought back to the church, the faith, and see the love, prayer, hope I have for us and come back to my life and may we work together with faith in Jesus, and love for God and one another towards the unity of marriage. 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.
