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.

Dear St. Anthony, you are so beautiful. I love visualizing you holding the Infant Jesus tenderly in your arms. I love Jesus and you. Please pray for me to find my second love. I am so lonely and long so much for a second chance at love; to love and be loved. No matter how much I pray to Jesus to calm my heart, to accept His Will if it be that I am to remain alone, this profound desire does not cease, my heart is not calmed. Pray for me St. Anthony, be my friend and helper. In Jesus Name. Amen.
