We hail from Kerala and landed in Canada a month back with a hope for a promising tomorrow but unfortunately the start itself gave us a shock. We had left our bag with two laptops and some clothes at the airport itself and came to know of that only after a few days. Because we had left it near the conveyer belt, the chance of getting it back was really low We rushed to the place but could not meet the concerned person and thus had to come back.
There was so much of pressure inside us as the laptops were costly and if we had lost it buying a new one will be unaffordable for us, it will also affect our job hunt here. We prayed day and night and finally as a blessing we could get the bag back with all its contents after 2 days and the first thing we got while opening the bag was the photo of Saint Antony that we had brought along with us. This was a breath taking moment for us and also it was the saint Antony showing us that miraculous presence.
I strongly believe that St. Antony has answered our prayers so that we could use my laptop for typing this only because of your choicest blessings. In another instance, my husband left his mobile in a public washroom and without noticing this we walked quite a long way All through the way while running I was praying to my saint to help us because it was the only mobile we were having also we had all our contacts and passwords and credentials saved in that.
As a miracle it was found at the same place where he had kept it. This is again the blessings from the heaven above, I truly believe. We lost something far more important than the above mentioned two things Without this nothing will be possible in a foreign country like Canada. We did not lose our hope We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and offer you our garland as you have saved us from very critical situations in life at a foreign land.
Thank you once again for your blessings and I seek your presence in our life in the future too. Up on the loud of our voice and the heights of our belief we proclaim our belief in Saint Antony and also will definitely spread this message across to everyone. I pray that St Anthony may always be very close to you, and may he lead you ever closer to Jesus.

She said she put it in her make up bag and left it in her car, during the reception another friend ask her to move her car out of the driveway so the owner of the house could park his car in the inner parking.
She then gave her car key to him asking him to move it for her. Then that night after she found out about her wallet being missing, She ask me if it's okay if she call him to ask whether he saw that wallet during that time, I told her to check in her car first but she said her husband had gone to work at that stage driving her car, so I said why don't you txt him first, ask him to check your wallet in the car. While waiting for her husband to reply I also asked her to pray to St.

The next morning She sent me txt telling me that her husband found her wallet in her car, She thank me for the prayer and to St. I smiled and said to St Anthony " You never failed me " Morena. My name is Jennie Ruiz. I am writing my testimonial about St. Anthony's helo to find something. Years ago I was a seller on Ebay and I was waiting for a package in the mail that contained what I had sold to ship to customers.
I kept on tracking the package for days. I then prayed to St. Anthony to please find the package for me, because I was about to have to refund hundreds of dollars back to buyers. That same day I got the package delivered to me, and all my buyers were super happy and everything went smoothly!! The package had been lost in transit and somehow was found! This miracle that happened to me last night is nothing short of a miracle, divined intermission. My husband gave me a pair of diamond earrings for our 15th wedding anniversary last year. They were so special to me and they were also my only pair of real earrings lol.
A couple of months ago I fell asleep in them and in the middle of the night just took them off and put them on my nightstand. The next morning I was clearing out my nightstand and threw away some papers. I later remembered I had taken off my earrings and put them on the nightstand. When I went to get them one of them was missing. I was looking for them for months, praying to God everyday to find them. I also remembered the St. Anthony prayer that I had done back when my package was lost.
A couple on months past, literally would look for them everyday and praying with so much faith. My daughter would find me looking for them and would say "mom you should stop looking for them, they are lost". So last night I was cleaning my room, moving furniture and all and still looking. In the process one of my nails needed filing.
I remembered that sometimes I would keep a nail file in my purse, so I decided to look in one of my old purses, which was ripped in the inside and I have not used it in over a year. Guess what? No only finding the earrings was a miracle, where I found them was unbelievable. That to me believe even more in miracles!! Sorry for the long testimonials, but I am just so happy and had to share my story and thank my Lord Jesus Christ and My favorite saint St. I pray to saint Anthony always, Even For The Smallest Of Things I Ask His Help, Or If Im Trying To make a decision and im not sure im making the right choice i pray to saint anthony and saint Michael the archangel My protector for guidance if the think its the right decision or not, and believe it or not sometimes the things i wanted to do i never did because something else would come up to change those plans,, And i believe That was my 2 favourite saints helping and guiding me, saint Anthony has never failed me no matter what iv ever asked for from him, it.

I offer you my sufferings and my life for the safety and future of my children. Marami pong salamat. My wife and I were going to the local store when I noticed a poison trap for rats had something in it.
It was a kitten, barely weaned, he had wandered into the trap. I opened the trap, and the kitten immediately had a siezure and was very weak. We took him to the veterinary clinic, where they told us he had brain damage - probably from the poison, and he also tested positive for feline enteritis, - there was really very little hope for him but they admitted him.
Finally I prayed hard to both St Francis and St Anthony - having no idea until I read your article that they had known each other in life, and that St Anthony is the Patron Saint of lost things. The kitten was lost in every way possible, alone and very seriously ill. Now after six days, the kitten is much stronger, and is very loving.
His symptoms of brain damage have almost completely disappeared, and he has NO symptoms of feline enteritis. My faith has been very weak lately, but this has restored my faith completely. Thank you St Francis and St Anthony. Hi Anonymous, Thank you so much for sharing this heartwarming and inspiring story! St Francis and St Anthony, pray for us.

Thank you Saint Anthony. Post a Comment. St Anthony Guide -Miraculous letter deliveries. Miraculous mail deliveries in the lives of the Saints S. The letters stand for "St Anthony Guide" because of the miraculous story below. During his lifetime, God was pleased to work countless miracles in the life of the Franciscan Priest St. Anthony of Padua and his reputation for sanctity was universally acclaimed. So in a sense it is not surprising then that immediately after the death of St. Anthony the miracles worked at his tomb were so prodigious that the Bishop of Padua petitioned the Vatican for his canonization.
A judicial inquiry was instituted without delay, and by an exception regarded as unparalleled in history, on May 30, Pope Gregory IX, solemnly pronounced the decree of canonization, only eleven months after Anthony's death. His mother and two sisters who survived him had the extraordinary and extremely rare privilege of witnessing the canonization ceremony and joining in the festivities that followed the announcement.
Those familiar with the canonisation process know that such a speedy canonization is unheard of in the Catholic Church, as the normal process requires much study into the life of the proposed Saint, and as such they are normally canonised decades and quite often centuries after their deaths. Such was the remarkable holiness of St Anthony. The origin of the initials "S.
His wife, who remained in Spain, wrote a number of letters to him without receiving a reply. After many months full of worry and with the utmost faith and simplicity, she brought a letter with her to the Church of St. Francis at Oviedo. Anthony, and she placed a letter to her husband into his outstretched hand and prayed the following prayer with confidence, asking for his heavenly intercession: "St.
Anthony, I pray to thee; let this letter reach him and obtain for me a speedy reply.
Unfailing Prayer to St. Anthony
Weeping in frustration that her letter had not been delivered, she attracted the attention of the Brother sacristan who listened to her story. Afterward, he told her that he had tried to remove the letter but could not, and he asked the lady if she would try to remove it. She tried, and she did so with ease. The letter she retieved from the hand of the statue of St Anthony was not the one that she placed there the day before; it was a letter from her husband.
As she removed the letter from his hand, three hundred golden coins fell from the sleeve of the statue. Astonished, a number of the friars were called and ran to the scene and waited while the miraculous letter was opened. The letter was dated July 23, and read: "My dearest wife. For some time I have been expecting a letter from you, and I have been greatly troubled and concerned at not hearing from you. But at last your letter has come, and given me joy. It was a Father of the Order of St. Francis who brought it to me. You complain that I have left your letters unanswered. I assure you that when I did not receive any from you I believed you must be dead, and so you may imagine my happiness at the arrival of your letter.
I answer you now by the same religious Father, and send you three hundred golden crowns [coins], which should suffice for your support until my approaching return. In the hope of soon being with you, I pray God for you, and I commend myself to my dear patron St. Anthony, and ardently desire that you may continue to send me tidings of yourself.
Your most affectionate, Antonio Dante" The original letter, written in Spanish, is affectionately kept and preserved at the Franciscan Monastery in Oviedo. In memory of this event, the practice of writing S. Anthony Guide on letters has became popular, thereby placing the letters under the protection of St Anthony whom they trust will get the letter safely to its proper destination.
Gemma Galgani Another more recent case of miraculous mail deliveries occured in the extraordinary life of the 20th century stigmatic and mystic Saint Gemma Galgani In the "Life of St Gemma Galgani" written by her spiritual director, Venerable Father Germanus Ruoppolo, a few years after her death we read how the extraordinary mystic was on such familiar terms with her Guardian Angel that she sometimes entrusted her letters to him for safe delivery: "One day, with the most charming simplicity, she prayed to her spiritual director's angel to take the letter she had written to him.
Gabriel is an angel who serves as a messenger for God to certain people. He is one of the three archangels. Gabriel is mentioned in both the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible. First, in the Old Testament, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his His mother Mary was either a sister or a close relative of the Blessed Virgin, and for that reason, according to Jewish custom, he was sometimes called the brother of the He was born around AD, in Stridon, Dalmatia.
