St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua is one of the Catholic Church’s most popular saints. Saint Anthony of Padua, patron saint of lost and stolen articles, was a powerful Franciscan preacher and teacher. He’s typically portrayed holding the child Jesus—or a lily—or a book—or all three—in his arms.

The Shrine

“Mt. Airy” is the familiar name for the National Shrine of St. Anthony and Friary sitting on a hill above Cincinnati. The shrine had its start in the late 1880s, when Joseph and Elizabeth Nurre bought what was then a country estate for $18,000 and gave it to the Franciscan friars.

About the Friars

The 130 friars of St. John the Baptist Province (SJB) are members of the Order of Friars Minor, a Franciscan brotherhood inspired by the 13th-century example of St. Francis of Assisi serving the Catholic Church as brothers and priests, in devotion to the search for God in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others.

We need urgent prayers for victims of severe floods in Kerala, Southern India. 13 out of 14 counties have been on red alert since Monday and most parts have been submerged in water including houses, hospitals, airports, churches and everything. Millions of people have lost their homes and half of them have been moved to the rescue camps. The rest are still stuck and cannot communicate with the rescue teams as there is no power across the state now.

I pray for divine healing and growth in the relationship between EJ and I. Grow our connection, communication, trust and confidence in one another. Grow a bond no one and nothing can come between. Build us a foundation to last through to a fruitful marriage together. Grow us to be a perfect reflection of one another. Grow me to be able to act right through his personality and ups and downs. Grow him to understand and respect me and how I express myself. Grow us socially. Heal my social anxieties
