St. Anthony Medals

St. Anthony is widely known as the Patron Saint who helps people find lost objects, the poor, and barren women.

Along with St. Paul the Hermit, St. Anthony is one of the founders of Christian monasticism. St. Anthony is appealed to by those who are affected by infectious diseases and in Malta, shingles are known as St. Anthony's fire.

Many miracles have been attributed to Saint Anthony, most of them taking place in Padua (and thus his name). One of the most noted of the miracles concerned a young man by the name of Leonardo. One day, in a moment of uncontrollable anger, Leonardo kicked his mother. Truly repentant for this sin, Leonardo confessed to St. Anthony. Saint Anthony told Leonardo that the foot of a man who kicks his mother deserves to be cut off. Leonardo, taking these words to heart, returned home to amputate his foot. When Saint Anthony learned what happened, he immediately went to Leonardo and miraculously healed him.

Saint Anthony of Padua is venerated today as one of the greatest Franciscan Saints.

Prayer to Saint Anthony the Wonder Worker

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace adn tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God.Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God.
