KEYSFr. John received this St. Anthony story from
fellow Franciscan friar J.J. Gonchar

Dear John,


The ‘Finding of the Lost’ was similar to what happened to me some months ago.

I had lost my house key.  I searched everywhere for it but no luck.  I searched my bedroom thoroughly more than once, for I might have dropped it there.  I told myself that I would not worry about it, that St. Anthony would find it for me.  My trust, however, was not that rock solid.

One day I began to look around again just in case.  Lo and behold, there it was on the floor at the end of my bed, right out in the open.  I could have sworn that I looked there more than once.  To me, that was a miracle.

I'm not sure if it is naturally possible to look and not see what is really there.  Be that as it may, I was and still am most grateful to St. Anthony.  He has come through for me more than once.

May God be continually praised in and through him.
