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.

I'm going through kidney failure and it's very scary and lonely. I would really appreciate it if you could say a prayer that I will get to spend time with my loved one while I'm still able to enjoy it. That is my dearest wish, and what would help me the most to get through this difficult and confusing time. God bless you for being so kind. Thank you very much!

Dear St. Anthony, you are known as “the wonder worker” and since I have chosen you as my patron I am asking you for a miracle. If it be Jesus’s Will, Please intercede for a healing of my spine so that my daughter and I may minister to those in need to whatever capacity I am able. We are currently under attack by greedy hypocritical criminals attempting false accusations against us for their own personal gain. Please ask Mary to intercede to Jesus for righteousness and success for justice.
