But what I am most thankful to him for, is when he helps me find my Faith in God whenever I lose it during times of weakness and trials.

So whenever you have lost something, tangible or intangible, Pray to St. Anthony for intercession to God so that God may grant you to find what you have lost.

And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.
