My son had attended a local Catholic elementary school where I volunteered to watch the children during lunch in the cafeteria. One day I went to put on my disposable food preparation gloves and noticed the diamond in my engagement ring was missing. I was looking everywhere on the floor and the school receptionist came over to ask me what I was looking for. I told her, and she and the secretary held hands and prayed. Afterwards, I went home to look and decided to use my vacuum with a piece of old stocking on the head to see if I may have lost it in my bedroom. As I vacuumed I prayed to St. Anthony. I sat on my bed to look through the dust that accumulated on the stocking. All of a sudden a feeling came over me; I stopped, got up and walked over to a bath towel that was in front of my bedroom sliding door for my dogs’ wet feet. I turned over one corner of the towel and underneath was my diamond. I felt a prickle up my neck. I immediately called the school and was told that our principal, Sister Anne, over the loud speaker, just had all the children say a prayer for the lunch mom who lost her diamond. I know deep in my heart that our prayers were heard and answered.
Dear St. Anthony, please help my son Matthew find his lost laptop computer which he needs for school. We pray that you will help him find it. Thank you.
