St Anthony. Confused him for the Saint of “Loss Causes” — instead of “lost things” — and prayed for his intercession when my beloved doggie Botín was going under life-threatening surgery. I then started to read about his life and learned that St Anthony loved the Divine Child and all animals. I loved animals but thanks to him and Mother Angelica I became a fan of the “Divino Niño.” I know appreciate more the Catholic Church, its teachings, its values and its Saints. I absolutely love St Anthony and he has been a great companion in my life’s journey (along with my four-legged furry beasts:-) ~ I owe a big thank you to the Virgin Mary too…she introduced me to her beloved son, to God and the Holy Spirit. She helped me countless times and I usually think “What would she do in XYZ situation?” – Thanks you and thanks to all who help us be better human beings.
