Re: [LutheransLookingEast] Re: Implications of intercessory prayers...
- Just a little oddity...that a Greek Orthodox woman would pray to St. Anthony
for a lost item. I would have thought a Greek Orthodox woman would have
prayed to St. Phanourios? I recall St. Anthony is the saint the Roman
Catholics pray to for lost things. Do some of you folks from other
jurisdictions pray to St. Anthony for lost things?
By the way, St. Phanourios helped me out of a major jam last summer when I
was in Europe. The night before I was to leave for a critical business trip
(leaving from vacation) I had lost my passport. In a wild frenzy I was
pulling bags out of the trunk of the car, crying my eyes out when I finally
stopped everything and told my Lutheran husband that I needed to ask St.
Phanourios for help. I prayed and the passport was at the bottom of the
trunk under a large suitcase. No reason for it to have been there...but it
was. My priest calls St. Phanourios a great evangelist.
