Although Saint Anthony was born into riches he rejected it to serve the poor.

So you could make a donation to the poor or have Masses said for the souls in Purgatory, and a thank-you in prayer, or some-other charity.

St.Anthony is my beloved Patron Saint and he's granted my request prayers often too.
There is a great website about this saint and there are many ways to thank St.Anthony even personally.

God bless

I think he might like it if I find a way to electronically link my cell phone, keys, glasses and purse, maybe to my TV remote, so if I find one, I can find all of them, and give the good saint a break.

Thank him by telling more people about him.

Default Re: How to thank St. Anthony?

I also owe St. Anthony many, many thanks. He has helped me soooooo many times find things. Little, unimportant things just to help keep me sane because I lose everything in this house.

I've asked him for help finding something a little more important, though. Years ago, when I was still a teen, my mom gave me and my sister a very expensive crystal rosary. I kept it for years in my top dresser drawer in it's original box. At some point, probably between our many, many moves it has vanished. I have no idea what could have happened to it. So, I've asked St. Anthony to return to me so I have it to pray my Divine Mercy Chaplet every night. I would like so much to have it back so I have something special to pass down to my grandkids someday......

I often wonder how St Anthony can stop and help others when he has a full time job at my household.

Thank him by resolving to be a saint and life a virtuous life.

Your salvation will make him very happy.

This website is for an elementary school in New Orleans. Is there a hidden link to click there, or is there perhaps a different web address altogether for the website about the saint? Thanks.

He wants you to read daily Bible -that could be the reason you have found the glasses.

Thanks for sharing. Thanks St. Anthony.
Thanks God.

My mother gave me my baptismal name, Anthony, after St. Anthony. When she was pregnant for me, she had very difficult time, and was sure I would not be born alive, never mind healthy.
She prayed to Saint Anthony and promised to name me after him, I was born healthy. I was, and hence my baptismal name.


He's always had a place in my heart.

Jim

try this, telling St Anthony that if the rosary is found, you will pray it daily, so the kiddos and grandkiddos can see. You will not merely keep it safe in a box in the dresser.

Use Google and google "Franciscan Mission Associates."
(without the quotation marks, LOL ).

The devotion called St. Anthony's Bread
is a popular way of thanking Saint Anthony and several centuries old. You make a small donation to St. Anthony's Bread,
which is used to buy food for the poor, whom Anthony cared so much about.

Franciscan Mission Associates have a St. Anthony's Bread
for the poor donation program on their website.

God bless,

That was the gist of the conversation.

But then again, once I pull it out of my dresser drawer, he's going to have to step in and help me find it again.
