San Antonio de Padua Also known as Saint Anthony of Lisbon, he was a Portuguese theologian, preacher and monk. We call him to find the lost things in our life.
He is the most rapidly canonized person by the Catholic Church, only 352 days after his death, due to the immense number of miracles attributed to him.
It is said that Saint Anthony of Padua could be heard by the fish and that he carried the baby Jesus in his arms during one night.
Also, he found any targets that people had missed.
It is known today as "the saint of all the world", because his devotion has spread to many countries and is the patron of:
- Sterile women,
- poor, sick and needy,
- travelers and sailors,
- bakers and
- paper racks.
When and how do we invoke the Saint of Padua?
As we explained, it is usually invoked to find lost objects, since that gift characterized its existence. Many of the faithful even ask him to help them find love again.
We not only refer to lost things or objects, but to all kinds of feelings, people or situations that have taken us away from what we want or need.
- With this prayer to Saint Anthony To find the lost we can invoke the saint, for example, to recover love, a job, relationships with a family member, the good paths in life, peace or stability that we so desire.
The prayers to Saint Anthony of Padua are powerful, but we must always pray them with great faith and trust that the saint will find that which is so dear to us that we lost.
- We can light a white candle in his name and offer him that light to invoke him.
- Let's choose a time of day when we are alone, a quiet and peaceful place.
- Let's meditate on what we want to find, let it be from the heart and with faith.
