St. Anthony will always be so special to me!

I remember growing up and hearing (in Italian) prayers for St. Anthony to help find lost items. My prayers were a bit different, I prayed for a very sick dog. You see, I adopted/rescued a German shepherd/Swiss Shepherd mixed dog. I needed her and she needed me… the beginning of our story. Then out of the blue she became very, very ill. From local vets to a specialty vet hospital a good distance from home, we were told it was advanced liver disease and her chances weren’t good.

NO! I refused and instead prayed to my St. Anthony, my benefactor and with his aid my girl is still with me 2 years later!!!

Never, never doubt St. Anthony’s great love and power. Thank you St. Anthony with all my heart.
