I had lost my Mother Mary statue, which I hold every day in my hand while praying and sleeping. She gives me protection and stays with me always. But today, I had lost the statue, and it was nowhere to be found. I cried and asked St. Anthony to help me find it, as he has never failed me. I thank him that I found it in the same place where I had searched multiple times, but it was not there before. It miraculously appeared there.

Very quiet and neat place to pray. Almost every year, I have been visiting St. Anthony’s Shrine, it is like magnet pulling us every time. Our last visit was in September 2023 with family from Bangalore. We are very thankful to St. Anthony for all the favours and blessings.

I was taken to the Shrine of St Antony, Uvari, by my parents in the same way Jesus went to the Temple of God on His First Visitation. Since then, I have been ever indebted to him for all the graces and blessings I have received in my life from him!

முதுமை மிகு நிலப்பரப்பாம் தென்பாண்டி மண்டலத்தின்,
தெற்கு கடலோரம் ,
உவரியின் ஓயாத கடலடி ஓசையில் கோயில் கொண்டு வீற்றிருக்கும் எங்கள் அந்தோனி மாமுனிவன்.
எட்டு திக்கும் அவன் புகழ் பரவட்டும்.

The first saint I have seen in my life is St. Anthoniyar. He has been tremendous in our life with lots of blessings. Whenever we needed his help, he was with us. We THANK HIM for all the blessings he has showered on us. My Father Mr. Soosai Viyakulam is one of his devotee who has been visiting St. Anthoniyar\’s feast every year till now. Now he is sick and not able to attend this years feast. I pray to St. Anthoniyar that he would bless him and cure him as early as possible.

There are much better reviews than mine, but I couldn’t resist to rate my own church, St. Anthony’s Church, being my Patron Saint. One of the oldest churches in Tirunelveli district. Whenever I enter into the church, my mind becomes peaceful than any other place in the world. Praying in front of St.Antony gives me all the confidence I can have and achieve greater.
