Mother merits halo

MY mother always prayed to St Anthony and I never knew why.

While I was spending a few weeks in hospital, a Catholic priest came to see me.

I asked him of what St Anthony was the patron saint.

He told me if I asked St Anthony to help me find something I had lost, that he would help me to find it.

That is strange, because I always ask my mother to help me find things I have lost, and then I always put my hand on them straight away.

My mother died 34 years ago – St Anthony’s little helper, perhaps?
