The Lost Treasure. MS/2018/16

A young man lost a huge amount of money which he saved over a long period of time to solve his personal need. The lost treasure grieved him so much to the point of depression. Then, as in a flash, the image of St Anthony of Padua came to him. He remembered vividly how he was devoted to this saint in the past when he was still fervent with his spiritual life. He made up his mind to seek the assistance of St Anthony whom he had known as the finder of lost things.

 

At that point, the young man sprang into action and headed to a nearby parish which has a well decorated shrine of St Anthony of Padua. knelling before the shrine, he prayed his grief,sobbing all through his prayer. Then in the quiet moment that followed, he saw the vision of St Anthony standing before him and in tears.

 

When he saw this, the young man immediately felt consoled by the loving empathy of St Anthony for his lost treasure even before the saint spoke up; “I was marvelled, my friend, that you are not perturbed over the loss of your real and eternal treasure, yet you fret over a trivial loss. If, indeed, you would like to recover your lost state of sanctity, I will gladly help you. I will , of course, find your money at the proper time; but I was moved to tears at the loss of your holiness of life and your indifference to this grave loss. You do not know the little that is left of your earthly sojourn”. The piercing words of St Anthony opened the eyes of the young man to his spiritual need, which he has disparagingly overlooked.
