Biography of Saint Anthony of Padua
Antonio de Padua, is also known as San Antonio de Lisboa and his birth took place in Lisbon, Portugal, around 1191 to 1195 and his death took place in Padua, Italy, on June 13, 1231. He was known as a religious of the Franciscan Congregation, being a preacher and theologian and revered as a saint and doctor of the Church by Catholicism.
Its competence in preaching was notorious, so much so that it was called the “Ark of the Testament” by Gregory IX. The Biblical references in the Sunday Sermons and Festive Sermons, the two works of his authorship, exceeded the figure of six thousand, which presupposes a degree of scholastic knowledge that gives justification to the special recognition that was granted to him, «evangelical doctor» .
The sanctification of Antonio de Padua is considered the second fastest carried out by the Church, after Saint Peter the Martyr of Verona. He is one of the most popular saints in Catholicism and devotion to him has spread widely, his feast day being commemorated on June 13.
Miracles of Saint Anthony of Padua
The Child Jesus appeared to him even as a friar when he was praying alone in his room. That is the reason why in the images of Saint Anthony of Padua he always appears with the Child Jesus in his arms.
Saint Anthony of Padua, when having a controversy with a heretic, was challenged to evidence the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. For which, they placed a mule on a fast, so that when it was released, it would choose between food and the veneration of Jesus. When the time came, the animal moved away from the hay to kneel in the presence of God, which caused a great impression among those present.
A huge number of followers were attracted by the popularity of his preaching, so that, on a certain occasion, the church in which they were found did not have room for everyone, so it was decided to celebrate it outdoors. Suddenly the sky showed threats of a terrible storm that made the parishioners flee, but the saint summoned them and guaranteed that they would not get wet. Indeed, the storm descended around them, leaving all the attendees dry.
