Only My Mom
Sunday, November 11, 2007
Would give me this....

In case you can't tell off the bat what this is, it's lip balm. And in fine print it says "St. Anthony Pray For Us"


If I remember correctly, he's the Saint you're supposed to ask to intercede with God for the return of things lost or stolen. Car keys, your favorite sweater, your sunglasses, you name it. So I asked my mom why would St. Anthony be on the cover of a lip balm? So I can lose it and then have to pray:

Something's lost and can't be found
Please, St. Anthony, look around.

She said, "Well, he also helps you find a spouse." I'd never heard that before so naturally I looked it up online. I should've known mom wouldn't just make that up, since I found this:

June 13 - St. Anthony of Padua was born in Lisbon, Portugal and is the patron saint of Portugal. Because he's considered a matchmaker, young people write to him on St. Anthony's Eve, asking for help in finding a spouse. Young men will present a pot of basil concealing a love letter or poem to the young lady they hope to marry on this day as well.

So maybe mom is giving me the lip balm in hopes that I will find a good man and my lips will be ready to go when I do. Haha! Seriously though, I looked up that website on the lip balm. You can get all kinds of lip balm with your favorite saints, Jesus images, angels, etc. I swear, mom would buy a chainsaw if it had St. Anthony on it.

    My grandfather was born on June 13th and was named Anthony in honor of St. Anthony. Yeah, I know not really pertinent, but what I think about when I see St. Anthony.

    In mexico, if you hang the the statue of st. anthony upside down, he'll work faster so he can be right side up again.

    My mom used to say she had our statues upside down. lol
