Unhappy Lost my rosary

I have this beautiful pale pink pearl rosary. I was given it by a friend who really taught me so much about being Catholic. I had it with me at my grandfathers funeral and at our wedding. I'm so upset I can't find it.

Please can you say a short prayer to help me find it?

Thank you friends,
FOT

Dear St. Anthony, come around, something's lost and can't be found!

You might think that is frivolous but St. Anthony seems to have a sense of humor...He doesn't mind being asked in a humorous way to help us recover lost objects (or even people).

You can also just ask him outright, "St. Anthony, please return my lost rosary to me!" Sometimes it takes a while, other times it turns up right away.

I pray through the intercession of St. Anthony that he helps you find your rosary and give it you in one piece. I pray that St. Anthony leads and guides you to where your rosary might be. St. Anthony , Our Lady of Perpetual Help, and Jesus Christ, please help this person find her rosary which is pink and is a beautiful rosary. She use this rosary for church, wedding events, other types of events, and to pray for friends and family and praying the rosary. Please help her find it and really imperative that you do. She really needs it back. St. Anthony, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, and Jesus Christ, please help this person find her rosary, in the name of Jesus, Amen. Through Christ, Our Lord, Amen. I really believe that you will find your rosary. Call on St. Anthony, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, and Jesus Christ for assistance. They will guide and show you where your rosary is. I know that you will find it.

I told my son to do that, but he snapped back, "MOM! The cars are 20 feet away from the tables at least!"

Well, I won't go into the details but after a lot of searching, and me heading down there to help, the retainer was found...safe and sound... UNDER their van! He had scooped it up in the napkins and the remainder of their lunch and only dropped it as he got into the van...If they had moved the van it would have been crushed.

So you see, St. Anthony really does know where things are, if we will just listen to him!

Dear FullOfThought,
I had lost my rosary 2 weeks ago. I was rather engrossed with my work and left it at my desk, I felt so bad thinking that the cleaning guys may have put it in the bin. I remember saying a fervent prayer in my own words to the Lord, rosary to His Mother and St Joseph and St Rita...and believe or not I just got it yesterday ...a colleague had noticed it on my desk after I left ..and she kept it safe for me until she returned to work yesterday!!
So I understand how you feel... I will keep you in my prayers ..

God Bless!!
~Clare

I had to put in a note for this one for I did lose my Rosary -- it's beautiful and it was sent to me by one of my granddaughters when she in Paris and she apparently got it at Notre Dame of Paris. At any rate I take it everywhere with me and have a special place in my purse for it. One day all of a sudden I couldn't find it -- looked everywhere -- couldn't find it -- THEN I said a prayer to St. Anthony and lo and behold I found it -- couldn't figure out why I hadn't found it before but was very grateful to St. Anthony!!!

I think Satan loves to cause us to lose our rosaries. Sometimes I think he or his demons actually steal them! Once I lost a rosary after praying in front of Planned Parenthood!

It's the most powerful weapon against Satan!

See??? St. Anthony showed you where it was!! Sometimes I think he even moves things so we find them again. I know I have looked someplace and yet when I go back to it, the thing is there.

Thanks, St. Anthony, for your help in this situation! We love you!
