This is a Beautiful Statue of Saint Anthony.
Feastday: June 13
Patron of Lost Things
Canonized By: Pope Gregory IX in 1232
Most dear and faithful servant of Christ, blessed St Anthony, to whom God has granted such favours that, through your intercession, lost temporal goods are recovered, pray for me, a sinner, that I may acquire and preserve peace of mind, with light and knowledge to discern good from evil and truth from error, so that being delivered from all evils, scruples, darkness, and uneasiness of mind and conscience, I may faithfully serve my God and Saviour, Who is worthy of all honour and glory, with peace of mind, purity of conscience, and justice of life. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
It is generally believed that one of the most acceptable devotions that can be offered to Saint Anthony to obtain any favor, or in thanksgiving for a favor received is the recital of once or thrice the Creed. To it, many of his clients add the aspiration.
“St Anthony, beloved of God and man, pray for us.”
