Lost!

St. Anthony, St. Anthony
Please come down
Something is lost
And can’t be found

 

Yoikes! Bip has lost his favorite stuffed animal, a dolphin named “Whee”. He’s been walking around for the last couple of days saying, “Whee? Whee?”. Could you join me in petitioning good ol’ St. Anthony for his help and intercession? Or for my Protestant buddies, just a quick prayer to the Big Man himself?

“St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find [name the item] which has been lost. At least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor, I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.”

 

 

More Mac and Cheese, please!

  • I’ll ask the Big Man to help your little man find his animal.

    My kids all had a special blanked when they were little. WOE to the person that got between my baby and their blankie!

    Praying it finds its way back to you, or your little guy miraculously forgets about it.

  • Hi Lorri–

    Thanks for posting this prayer of St. Anthony. I’m Christian Protestant, but I too have a precious boy who has lost his beloved stuffed puppy, “Rosemary.” I love the prayer’s emphasis on him finding his security through faith in Christ.

    Love your blog!
