AT THE END OF THE SEQUENCE PRAY:
If miracles thou fain wouldst see - Do error, death, calamity,
The leprous stain, the demon flies, From beds of pain the sick arise.
The hungry seas forego their prey, - The prisoner's cruel chains give way;
While palsied limbs and chattels lost, Both young and old recovered boast.
And perils perish; plenty's hoard - Is heaped on hunger's famished board;
Let those relate who know it well, Let Padua of her patron tell.
The hungry seas forgo their prey ---
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
The hungry seas forego their prey ---
V. Pray for us Blessed Anthony.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Something is lost and cannot be found!
When I was 6 years old, this little non catholic girl was in the hospital receiving an eye operation. I had never heard of a Saint, had no idea what a Saint was or what a Catholic was. And it would be years before I discovered that Saint Anthony was the saint of lost things! Well, when I found this out, I could only marvel over my new eyesight and thank St Anthony over and over again - to this day! The hospital was St Anthony's in Amarillo Texas. For more see:
