Saint Series
This week - Saint Anthony of Padua (Feast Day: June 13)
Have you ever lost anything? Have you ever felt lost yourself? If so, then Saint Anthony is your new best friend! He thought God wanted him to preach in Morocco, but he ended up in an obscure country location in Italy. Perhaps Anthony thought that God had forgotten about him – but by the end of his life, Anthony was known as the most passionate preacher of the Gospel in Italy. Oh, and if you lose your car keys, or your hat, or your hope, ask Saint Anthony to intercede for you!
