Help from that Great Cloud of Witnesses
Today I needed to refill Bethany's medicine tray. I opened up our lock box where we keep our medicine, and went to dole out the pills into their aloted spaces in the pill dispenser...and her Geodon was nowhere to be found. I could not find it.
So, I checked in the bedroom...not there. I looked around and under, and in varous places. Perhaps it had fallen into a dresser drawer. Nothing. I checked the medicine shelf in the kitchen, and nothing. I double checked where we stash our vitamins...nothing.
Then a friend of mine called, while I was hunting for the Geodon bottle and we prayed together. She prayed a prayer and asked St. Phanourios to pray for us. He is the saint of finding lost things.
As quickly as the prayer was said, the Geodon was found. Wes found it.
Glory to God who is mighty in His Saints and who heard our prayers and the mighty intercessions of Saint Phanourious.

I like getting to know saints I have not previously met. Holy Saint Phanourious, pray to Christ our God that He have mercy on me, a sinner.
