St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua 1

O Holy St. Anthony,

gentlest of Saints, your love for God and

Charity for His creatures, made you worthy,

when on earth, to possess miraculous powers.

Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to obtain for me (request).

O gentle and loving St. Anthony,

whose heart was ever full of human sympathy,

whisper my petition into the ears of the sweet Infant Jesus,

who loved to be folded in your arms;

and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.


St. Anthony of Padua

Feast Day: 13th June

Anthony was born at Cona about the middle of the third century. His parents were very rich and wanted him to be a great nobleman. But he wanted to be poor and follow Jesus, so he became a Franciscan.

Anthony was a great preacher. He was send out as a missionary and preached in many cities in Italy and France. He brought sinners back to God mostly by his good example. One day, when Anthony was praying in his room, the Infant Jesus appeared to him, put His little arms around his neck, and kissed him. This wonderful favour was given to him because he loved Jesus very much.

When he became ill, he went to a monastery outside of Padua where he prepared for death. Many miracles took place after his death on June 13, 1231. Even today he is called the 'wonder-worker'.
