Long Beach Police Department
ORIGINAL POST, JUNE 15, 3:37 P.M.: Long Beach Catholics are praying to St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of lost things, for the return of his relic, which has gone missing this week.
Last on display about nine years ago, the 16-inch gold relic was brought out again this past weekend, the 780th anniversary of the death of St. Anthony, as a way to reinspire parishioners struggling in the rough economy. The patron saint is not only believed to be able to restore lost items, but also one's faith in God.
