Feastday of St. Anthony of Padua
edit_button

Today is the Feastday of St. Anthony of Padua. Please see my 2006 Post on St. Anthony for more information applicable to today, including prayers, readings, a brief biography of St. Anthony, and an explanation of the meaning behind the above image.

Prayer:

May the votive solemnity of blessed Anthony, Thy Confessor and Doctor, O God, give joy to Thy Church: that she may ever be defended by spiritual aid and become worthy of everlasting joys. Through our Lord.

Prayer Source: 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal

Readings:

"Actions speak louder than words; let your words teach and your actions speak. We are full of words but empty of actions, and therefore are cursed by the Lord, since he himself cursed the fig tree when he found no fruit but only leaves. It is useless for a man to flaunt his knowledge of the law if he undermines its teaching by his actions."

"The saints are like the stars. In his providence Christ conceals them in a hidden place that they may not shine before others when they might wish to do so. Yet they are always ready to exchange the quiet of contemplation for the works of mercy as soon as they perceive in their heart the invitation of Christ."
