Saint Anthony of Padua – friend of Baby Jesus and miracle worker, is known as the intercessor of all those who seek lost items. He is the Patron of Portugal, of travelers, of pregnant and barren women, and of the poor. Here is a small prayer to St. Anthony.
Dear St. Anthony, you are the patron of the poor and the helper of all who seek lost articles.
Help me to find the object I have lost so that I will be able to make better use of the time I gain for God’s greater honour and glory. Grant your gracious aid to all people who seek what they have lost, expecially those who seek to regain God’s grace. Amen
