St. Anthony Finds His Own Book
Yes, supposedly St. Anthony's patronage of finding lost objects stems from this story:
Quite some time after St. Anthony left this mortal coil, a book that was a relic of his went missing. Since the book was a holy relic of the saint, everyone was duly upset and prayed for the intercession of the saint for its safe return.
The book reappeared. But the explanation was not miraculous.
Some novice had it. He had borrowed it and was very embarrassed to have caused the commotion.
So that's that.
Have a nice weekend everyone! Don't forget to turn your clocks back! You'll have an extra hour. Use it wisely!
