Do you say a quick prayer to Saint Anthony when you've lost something?
True, Saint Anthony of Padua is the go-to saint for misplaced possessions, but this Doctor of the Church is here to help us find so much more!
As a fellow Franciscan and contemporary of Saint Francis of Assisi (in fact we have Saint Francis to thank for kick-starting this humble Friar's public speaking vocation!) we know that Anthony sought to live a simple life serving God. Prayer, and devotion to Holy Scripture nurtured his relationship with Our Lord, inspired his divine connection to the Baby Jesus, and gave him the grace needed to lead the lost back to the Faith.
Saint Anthony can inspire all of us navigating today's world! With its uplifting traditional design and heartfelt prayer our Saint Anthony Prayer Pillowcase offers the perfect reminder for young and old alike to pray for Saint Anthony's intercession: to find strength from scripture in times of doubt, to find ways to share the love and peace of God with our fellow humans, and to find ourselves awed by and devoted to the Christ Child.
Personalize the Saint Anthony Prayer Pillowcase as a special devotional gift for your loved one. See image above right to see how it looks personalized then select the Personalize It! option to add your loved one's name.
