St. Anthony, please help me find my ring that was given to me as a souvenir from Alaska. It's very important to myself and my father. I pray that it will be found through your help. Amen.

I pray to you saint Anthony to please guild me in the right direction to find both my engagement and wedding ring. I feel terrible for taking them off just to put hand cream on, ive retraced my steps to try and remeber every movement that i made and still no luck. My whole family have also searched high and low for me to. My husband is very upset at me as he should be. Please help me find my rings i miss them so much, i promise to never take them off again once i find them. Ive name my two sons after saints already and I have told my husband that if i do find my rings that i want our next son to be named after you, we are a Catholic family who regularly goes to church every sunday. Please please help me find my rings they are of sentimental value and ni figure could ever replace them.

Thank You, Lord: The perfect morning prayer to start your day

Schools in my county were closed last week for two days due to an ice storm which left widespread power outages and downed trees. Winter has hit us particularly hard this year. This morning I found the perfect prayer to start off our school day here at John Carroll. It is filled with hope and gratitude. May your day be blessed.

 

Dear Lord,

You have made another beautiful day. You have given this day to me as a gift to enjoy. Thank You for the sun and the clouds, the wind and the rain. It is Your gift to me and I thank You. I will enjoy Your gift this day, dear Lord, especially the little things: the smell of breakfast, the song in my heart, the sight of Your flowers, the touch of Your hand, and knowing all this beauty is Your gift to me. I promise You, Lord, I will not hurt myself today with sad thoughts from my past or bitter memories of disappointment. You have given me a beautiful day and I will receive it with joy and gladness.

Amen.
