St. Anthony Object Location Spell

St. Anthony of PaduaIf you have lost an item, this St. Anthony Object Location Spell can help you locate it quickly.

St. Anthony of Padua is a Roman Catholic saint. He is especially known for helping with the recovery and return lost items. Invoking his help is a very effective way to quickly locate a misplaced object and is particularly useful, especially if you regularly forget where you’ve put your car keys or eyeglasses. Of course, if something is well and truly lost, this spell will have little or no effect.

Note: This spell has been in my family for as long as I can remember – my papa taught it to me, although he wouldn’t call it a spell but rather, a prayer. Regardless, whatever anyone wants to call it, it really works!

  Spell Tips:

  • Below are two versions of the same spell. It’s best to go with whichever one you’re most comfortable with as that’s the one that will work best for you. However, in my experience, the French version (below) seems to work better. I have absolutely no clue why as in life, he was a Portuguese priest, not a Frenchman.

  Tools & Ingredients:

  • none

  The Spell v. 1:

This is the polite version of the spell. Recite the following every few minutes, until you locate the item you’ve misplaced.

Oh, St. Anthony, come around.
Something’s lost and must be found.
Please help me find my [misplaced object’s name].
Thank you.

Once you’ve found your lost item say, “Thank you, St. Anthony!” to complete your spell.


St. Anthony Object Location Spell v2


  The Spell v. 2:

This is the not-so-polite French version of the spell. For some reason, this one seems to work the better for finding misplaced objects.

Saint Antoine de Padoue,
tu as le nez fourré tout partout.
Aide moi à trouver mon [misplaced object’s name].

Once you’ve found your lost item say, “Merci, Saint Antoine!” to complete your spell.
