St. Anthony

St. Anthony

Feast Day – June 13

St. Anthony of Padua is popular the world over. There is devotion to him in every region and corner of the world. Not surprisingly, he has a special place in the hearts of even those not of the Catholic faith. Portugese by birth, he is universally called St. Anthony of Padua, since he died near Padua and the region of northern Italy benefited from his priestly ministry.

Originally, a member of the Canon Regular of St. Augustine, he later became a Franciscan in 1220.

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

Amen.
