I’m sure at any point in time, there are many people praying for the intercession of many saints, especially well known saints such as St. Anthony, St. Jude, St. Christopher, St. John Paul II (well, almost a saint!! a few more days!), St. Teresa of Avila and many, many others.
If I’m in the US praying fervently for St. Anthony to help me at the same time 17 other people are also in the need of his intercession (surely I"m not the only one who loses her keys! ), how does that work?
