Is Praying to St. Anthony Idolatrous?

Full Question

if we lose something and pray to St. Anthony, is it idolatry?

Answer

No, because we’re asking St. Anthony—or any other saint for that matter—to intercede with Jesus on our behalf. Indeed, when we ask others for prayers on our behalf or for others, we can do no better than a canonized saint in heaven.

In summary, saints don’t compete with God, they collaborate with him, who is their creator as well, in advancing his kingdom.

  1. I am a living witness to the intercessions of St. Anthony of Padua in finding lost items. I cannot count the number of times it has worked for me.

  2. Do saints understand all the languages of the world? Can they be everywhere at the same time to hear the simultaneous prayers of the Christians in all parts of the world?
