Despite my frequent shortcomings and sinfulness, Saint Anthony of Padua has come to my aid today. Out of my own carelessness, I thought I lost a paycheque but thanks to Saint Anthony I found it. He really is the patron saint of missing items.
**Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Saint Anthony of Padua, **
Forgive me Jesus for my sins… I love you, you are my Lord, my King, my God and my Saviour. Help me to stay near you always.
*Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (mention your petition) which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss.
To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.*
