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 150 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 am grief stricken. I just lost my 24yr old beautiful daughter to preeclampsia on the 10th of July. She got married on the 13th of January and was burried on the 13th of july, exactly 6 months after her wedding. I can't stop crying and I can't pray. I spent my life worshiping God. This seems so unfair. Pls help lift me and her sister up with prayers. Thank you.

Saint Anthony is my mothers saint, he has always been there for her and for us as a family. I ask to please pray for her. She was just diagnosed with leukemia. Please pray that God gives her strength, that if it is his will, he will heal her, and that she will not suffer. Please pray to give her peace and help her comes to terms with this diagnosis, as well as helping our family throughout this tough time. Pray that Saint Anthony will hold her hand throughout this trial. Thank you and God Bless.
