Patron of the Poor and Lost Articles
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
St Anthony came to be known as “The Wonder Worker” for the many miracles and conversions attributed to him. Although quiet and unassuming, he was regarded as a sensational preacher in his time. A Franciscan priest and professor of theology, he gave up teaching to be assigned to preach all over Italy, attracting huge crowds wherever he went. His brilliant attacks on corruption completely transformed the city of Padua. He had particular affection for the poor and helped to abolish debtors’ prisons.
St Anthony is often depicted as holding the infant Jesus as it is said that the Christ child appeared to him in visions.
He is known as being of particular help in retrieving lost articles because of a story in which a book of Psalms was stolen and then returned because of St Anthony.
He died on June 13 at the age of thirty six. He was canonized the following year and declared as Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII in 1946.
Feast Day: June 13
Prayer to St Anthony of Padua
Most Holy St Anthony, the great love of God you possessed while on earth, merited for you the gift of miracles which you dispensed freely to those in trouble and adversity. Knowing our many trials and tribulations, we beseech you to whisper our petitions into the ears of the Holy Child, Jesus, whom you held many times in your arms with love and affection. If this request is for God’s greater glory and my salvation, may it be granted.
