Speed Dialing St. Anthony

St. Anthony Speed Dial

A fast-track to St. Anthony’s prayers
~

I call upon St. Anthony so often the he is on my speed dial.  He is after all, my friend.  After finding several things for me, my husband said,

“That friend of yours is always in your corner.”

Thank you for your prayers and good deeds.

God Bless You,
Sharon

“I just can’t stop thanking Jesus and St. Anthony”

Scooter

Except for a few scratches and the steel guard around the back of the scooter missing, all other things are intact. The engine is in perfect condition.

My family gave up hope, but not I
~

Last year, 2015 in the month of March, my daughter’s scooter was stolen. My nephew who took the scooter, parked it, locked it but did not take the keys.  When he realized this he rushed to the parking place. The scooter was gone. He filed a complaint at the police station.

I was heart broken. I prayed to St Anthony to intercede for me to Jesus.  Months passed, there was no news. My family gave up hope, but not I.  I continued to pray.  Being a fairly new scooter, they said the culprits would have ripped the scooter apart and sold all the parts. But I clung to my prayers. My faith was strong.

On Thursday February the 18th, almost after eleven months we got a call from the police station, informing us that they found our scooter intact and with only a few scratches. I was overwhelmed with joy and gratitude to God.

My hope, faith and prayer did not go in vain. I just can’t stop thanking Jesus and St Anthony.
