Tuesday, June 13, 2017: (St. Anthony of Padua)
St. Anthony said: “My dear sons and daughters, some of you have had the experience of visiting my tomb in Padua, Italy. Some feel vibrations or a slight electric shock. Your one pastor fell down twice when he touched my tomb. I have helped many people find things. You remember when you found your lost luggage before a fourteen day cruise. Your wife twice prayed to me to materialize a lost ear ring and a miraculous piece of glass that was lost. They truly materialized where they had not been before. You know I have a sense of humor when I reminded your daughter of who the saint is for finding things, even on my feast day. You need to have true faith that I can find things, in order to have things found. I know also how you have thanked me many times for such answers to your prayers. The best story of ‘lost and found’ is the parable of the Prodigal Son. The son took his share of his inheritance and squandered it on sinful living. Then he returned to his father to ask his forgiveness. The father was pleased to have him back home safe. His son was lost in sin, and now he is found in forgiveness. I did hear your request to find your wife’s lost ear ring.”

Jesus said: “My people, as in the Gospel, you are the salt and the Light of the earth, because you are sharing your faith and My love with all the people of the earth. So do not keep your faith to yourself, but you must share it with others. In the same way that you put a light on a lamp stand to light the whole room, so you also must be a Light to the world by sharing My Good News. So do not hide your light under a bushel basket, but you must go out into the streets to proclaim My message of love. You are to be a shining example of My love, so people can come to know and love Me by your witness to My Light. Give praise and glory to Me for feeding you and lighting your path to heaven. I feed you My very Self in your daily Holy Communion, which is truly your Bread of Life.”
