SAINT ANTHONY

Saint Anthony of Padua (1135 – 1231) also known as Saint Anthony of Lisbon is a Catholic saint born to a wealthy family in Lisbon Portugal. Against his family’s wishes he joined an Augustinian order and in that tradition took up scholarly pursuits studying Scripture and Latin classics. After an encounter with a group of Franciscans Saint Anthony felt called to join the Franciscan order in 1220. It was as a preacher that Saint Anthony revealed his divine gift and was recognized as a powerful orator. Saint Anthony died in Padua Italy. It is said that all of the bells in the churches rang of their own accord and children cried in the streets upon his death. The Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padua contains his relics. Saint Anthony is often represented in art holding the infant Jesus on a book with a lily in his other hand. He is especially invoked for the recovery of lost things (Saint Anthony Saint Anthony please come around. Something is lost and cannot be found.)
