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.

Please pray that the biopsy of my cyst sample would turn out to be benign and not malignant; the partial result is I am at borderline. I fervently pray to God to spare me from being afflicted with cancer. May God hear my prayer and grant me complete healing and fast recovery from the surgical operation I have and very recently for the removal of my ovarian cyst and that I may be able to come home to my family safe and sound and free of illness and be healthy again at the soonest possible time.
