Drew's St. Anthony story


Why did St. Anthony seem so familiar?

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. We are a Franciscan brotherhood inspired by the 13th-century example of St. Francis of Assisi. We serve the Catholic Church as brothers and priests in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others.

Carlo has been told that he would have a great job w/ IT in a month and that was 10 months ago. He currently has a job as a waiter to hold him over, however, they've been cutting his hours bc some day the new restaurant is doing great and some days it's dead. He's gone other interviews rather than to wait for the state but that too has failed. Carlo is an intelligent young man and does everything with heart and soul. Please, he is losing hope, is in despair, let him find a job he will love.
