St. Anthony of Padua Comments

Saint Anthony was canonized (declared a saint) less than one year after his death.

    Dear Saint Anthony,

    I pray for you to intervene and help me with all that I am going through at this time. Please pray that my mom go walking everyday so that her legs will get stronger and for my brother Paul who gets home late at night- keep him safely and in good health and for my husband who is not doing too good at work- he doesn't want to be there. Please help him to be happy. St Anthony please pray that we will get the money to pay for my daughter's tuition and my mortgage which is two months behind and also my car payments coming up shortly. Please pray that I get a job soon to help with the expenses, Lord. I pray also for my daughter to gain employment in Jesus' name I pray. Amen. Please intervene for me St. Anthony.

    Dear Theresa G. Rener,
    I got this information from the internet. I hope this helps

    St. Anthony is invoked as the patron saint of lost things. A little jingle goes like this: "St. Anthony, please look around; something is lost and must be found." This attribution comes from an incident where a novice carried off a valuable psalter St. Anthony was using. St. Anthony prayed very hard that the psalter would be found. After seeing an alarming apparition of St. Anthony, the novice returned the psalter. However, many suggest he is more importantly the patron of lost souls — those who have fallen to mortal sin, have abandoned the Church and have grown apathetic to the practice of the faith.
