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.

I am a homeowner who has a property that I can no longer care for. I want to sell or give it over to legal loan assumption. I do have some offers and want to do this ASAP so that my name may be removed and let someone else take the responsibility for it.

This is St Anthony of Padua? There has been exclusion and isolation by "all" to force obedience with what seems apostasy to Christian principles and subversion of the Constitution. I try to hear but it does not look like peace to submit to what seems like "false gods." Pray we all serve Truth and not pride. ...rather a tortured existence but I can't go with this "collective" blindly.

My husband's brother is a 3 time felon & has been released from prison after serving almost 19 yrs for shooting & crippling his landlord. He is a sociopath & has no remorse. My husband wants him to be a part of our life. Show me the way. Show his brother remorse. Please help keep him out of our lives permanently. We have grandchildren & a disabled son living with us. Please intercede with Jesus and help us & society. I beg you to please hear my pray. I will always be internally grateful.
