St. Anthony – The Saint of Miracles!
Pray to St. Anthony
Three Novenas of Prayers and Masses will be said in honor of St. Anthony. The first Novena will be held from December 2-10, the second from December 11-19, the third in Padua starting December 16.
In the news today, we hear about war and violence, the rising cost of fuel and food, and the possibility that thousands will lose their jobs or homes as the economy slows. It is so obvious that many need miracles in their lives. I am sure they are not alone.
Is there a special concern, a major problem in your life? Do you or a love one have an urgent need for a real miracle? If so, and I’m certain there is, then please let us pray for you during our three Novenas to St. Anthony this December.
Many of us know of St. Anthony as the finder of lost things. But he is so much more. He is the Saint of Miracles and he wants to see your prayers answered today. We have great confidence in his power to intercede for those who ask his help, which is why we devote these three Novena of Masses to him. During the first nine days of Masses, we will be asking St. Anthony to pray for all your special intentions. Then for the following eighteen days, we will be thanking God for all the graces that have already come into your life.
Please send us your petitions and intercessions as soon as possible so that we may include them in our prayers to St. Anthony, beseeching him to grant you this miracle you need.
When sending your petitions, would you please consider a donation in support of the Franciscan worldwide mission ministry? Our priests and brothers spend much of their time directly aiding people in need and your gift can help them give food to the hungry, drink to the thirsty, shelter to the homeless, and care for the sick.
To help fix your attention on St. Anthony, I’ll send along a special St. Anthony’s medal with a cloth touched to his relic and a booklet of novena prayers to St. Anthony to assist your prayers.
Your friend in St. Anthony,
Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
