The Franciscan Friars from Padua, Italy, invite you to join them in welcoming Saint Anthony of Padua. St. Anthony will be visiting us in the form of “two precious and first class” relics from the Pontifical Basilica in Padua, Italy.
The relics will be accompanied by Fr. Bortolino Maistrello, a Franciscan Friar from Padua, Italy, where the Saint is buried. According to Fr Mario Conte, who is Editor of the Messenger of St Anthony, , “There is nothing superstitious about relics. The real meaning of a relic is love – they are a link of love between the person who venerates and the saint.”
St Anthony intercedes with those trying to find a job, housing, faith, love, hope, harmony within the family, good health, peace of mind and mercy.
