Saint Anthony of Pauda

Saint Anthony of Padua was born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1195. At the age of 15 he joined the Canon Regular of Saint Augstine and remained a monk for ten years.

Filled with missionary ardo Saint Anthony entered the Franciscan Order in which he spent that last 11 years of his life. He dies in Vercelli, Italy 13 June 1231, and was canonized by Pope Gregory IX within a year.

 Saint Anthony is rightly celebrated as the Wonder-Worker of Padua, the city which guards his tomb, and by Catholics the world over as Saint Anthony.


 O Holy Saint 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. O gentle and loving Saint 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. Amen.
