Saint Anthony of Padua

June 13

Saint-Anthony-of-Padua.jpgSweet Jesus, Saint Anthony of Padua was always a ready helper in time of need.  Though he preferred to live as a hermit, leaving his cave only to attend Mass and sweep the nearby monastery, he filled in for a scheduled speaker who failed to keep his commitment.  Afterward, he had to travel constantly, because his reputation as a great preacher spread widely.  Since he’s become the patron saint for finding lost articles, I ask him to be my ready helper in time of need.  Though sometimes it seems petty to ask his help in finding items I’ve misplaced, I thank You, Lord, for giving me this saint who cares.  Saint Anthony of Padua, pray for me.  Amen.
