...I grew-up surrounded by relatives named Joey and Vinny...I have gone to many many elaborate First Communions, and I always knew that Saint Anthony was the guy to pray to when something was missing.
Saint Anthony, Saint Anthony look around...
Something's lost and must be found...
I still ask Saint Anthony for help when I've misplaced my keys (or, you know, my car.)
Whenever my good friend Laura (who is Jewish!) can't find something, I tell her I'll send-up a prayer to Saint Anthny for her...(since she is Jewish!)
She recently called me, all excited, to tell me she saw a Saint Anthony luggage tag in a gift shop.
"Saint Anthony, even as you watch over the lost and helpless, please look after my suitcase. Protect if from evil and mishandling, that I may see it once again on the baggage carousel. Amen"
I am flying-off to Florida this weekend...
And I will be taking with me, my new pink luggage.
With a Saint Anthony luggage tag on it.
