Saint Anthony of Padua 1195 – 1231

Who was St. Anthony of Padua? He was born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1195. The path of his walk with God was a wandering one, with many unexpected twists and turns. Anthony lived his faith in every circumstance in which he found himself, believing that anything that happened to him was an opportunity to grow closer to God and to trust Him in all things. His travels took him to North Africa, Sicily, Italy, and much of Europe, and in each place he preached by word and example about how to live a better life and attain the joys of heaven. When we ask St. Anthony for his prayers, we find that miracles can happen. Why does Our Lord favor the prayers of St. Anthony on our behalf with such courtesy?

Why read a biography of a saint? A saint is an ordinary person with an extraordinary love of God and neighbor, who now is happy to behold the Face of God in Heaven. We all need the inspiration of good example. Saints inspire us to live a more selfless life, relying on the merits of Christ Jesus in order to become more like Him. Saints likewise inspire us to go to greater lengths to love God and our neighbor. Just knowing about them helps us draw closer to Christ.
