Join Us for a Weeklong Celebration of St. Anthony!
Fr. David Convertino, OFM, will explore St. Anthony of Padua's life, miracles, prayers, preaching, and much more in a thought-provoking new video series beginning June 6, 2023, and ending on St. Anthony's Feast Day (June 13, 2023).
Fr. David will cover:
- June 6—The Life of St. Anthony—This video will explore the life of St. Anthony and relate his life of broken dreams and resurrections to ours.
- June 7—Images of St. Anthony—There are many different images of St. Anthony, and we will reflect on some of them and how they help us in our devotion and understanding of this great saint.
- June 8—Basilica of St. Anthony of Padua—St. Anthony’s tomb, his final resting place, has been opened and his followers have discovered many interesting facts about him and how his deep relationship with God developed.
- June 9—The Unfailing Prayer to St. Anthony—St. Anthony’s “Unfailing Prayer” is prayed by his followers millions of times each day. We will reflect on the prayer, its meaning, and its impact on our prayer life.
- June 10—The Miracles of St. Anthony—St. Anthony is credited with many miracles during his life and after, down to the present day. We will reflect on how these miracles affect our life with God and our devotion to this great Wonder-Worker.
