Anthony of Padua was born to wealth but for the sake of Christ he became a poor Franciscan priest. A gifted speaker, he attracted crowds everywhere, speaking in multiple tongues. When he found that heretics would not listen to him he went to the shore and preached to the fishes, for the glory of God, the delight of Angels - and to ease his own heart.
He is the patron saint of the poor, the starving, the patron saint of seekers of lost persons or articles, expectant mothers, travelers, sailors, fishermen & shipwrecks, & is honoured in the Catholic & Anglican churches.
