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, finally I have the opportunity to read about you. I first heard your name mentioned when I was a little child where my grand mother insisted for me to seek your assistance in prayer to locate my missing toy. It was through my faithful prayer that particular day that I found the lost and valuable toy. Today, I seek your assistance again to relocate my faith and belief in our holy church, values of life and simplicity in our daily chores. Amen.

    St. Anthony, I just want to thank you for your gratefulness throughout my lifetime to date. When looking back I can see many times when you were as close as God and Christ were. I have been dealing with a lot of mental issues lately and troubles of my own in life as well as work, family and friends. I have much faith and love for you and hope that you will look over my family and friends in these times and help me see the path of life that I must go down. I have been cut off for a few years from any communication with colleagues as well as human interaction overall with anyone and in need of help. I have been trying to positively look at everything I do with no negative thoughts even coming close to me or my thoughts but have been unsuccessful so far to date in overcoming these obstacles. Please guide me with your direction and help fulfill my body and spirit with the touch of yourself as well as the glory of God and Lord Jesus Christ. I Love You, Anthony S.

    In California there is a mission built by Father Junipero Serra which is dedicated to Saint Anthony Padua. It is on the military base Fort Hunter Liggett. To visit the mission one needs to show their I.D. and vechicle regestration at the base entrance, and they will be given directions to the mission. Since the mission is on a United States military base there has been no modern development around the mission grounds and it looks much as it did when Father Serra was alive. One can also arrange to stay at the mission overnight (phone ahead for reservations) and there are celebrations and festivals held there throughout the year.

    Please intercede with my mother who is "lost" with dementia. Please help me to understand what she is going through so that she can get back to a sense of normalcy in her life. I ask through Jesus name, Amen.

    I was in Padua earlier today taking a photo of the Basilica when I had to swap memory cards. I hadn't moved from my spot and I'd lost the full card, I was upset and it came to me that Saint Anthony is the one to pray to for lost items, so with nothing to lose I looked up to the Basilica and Prayed "Saint Antony if anyone can help me you can".
    I then got up and walked a few steps and it was on the ground. I don't know how it moved to where it did because I was crouching in the one spot, but I found my card.
    Thanks be to God and Saint Anthony.

    Saint Anthony, your assistance when I ask your help has been immediate and
    staggering if not miraculous. No one could have, or could be, a better friend.Your compassion is inspiring, your connection with mankind one of passion for doing
    all you can for those who open their hearts.

    Andrew, trust but work, make your way with what you have, be true to goodness, life is so shortand the horror of poverty and the stress of debt in a world where money means
    more than life itself is overwhelming. Let them do their worst and ask Saint Anthony to
    be your friend and guide to walk you back to the way you abandoned so long ago, then rediscover life,for it is so short and eternity awaits. Love your family, understand those who assail you, do good for others. In sacrifice you will find love. leave a legacy of goodness
    ans sanctity,for your family
