About Saint Anthony and Guest Speaker

St. Anthony is much more than the founder of lost things, many miracles are attributed to St. Anthony up until this present day.  Thousands of pilgrims to this day visit St. Anthony’s shrine and experience many miracles. Some parishes traditionally bless and distribute small loaves of bread on June 13, his feast day. The bread was shaped into individual loaves for parishioners to pass out at church, among friends and family or to the disadvantaged in their community.

 

“Compassion toward our neighbors ought to be threefold: if they sin against us, we ought to forgive them. If they stray from the path of moral integrity and truth, we should instruct them. If they are in need, we must help them.” 
– St. Anthony of Padua 
Currie

Sobre San Antonio y nuestro invitado

San Antonio es mucho más que el fundador de cosas perdidas, a San Antonio se le atribuyen muchos milagros hasta el día de hoy. Miles de peregrinos hasta el día de hoy visitan el santuario de San Antonio y experimentan muchos milagros. Algunas parroquias tradicionalmente bendicen y distribuyen pequeñas hogazas de pan el 13 de junio, su día de fiesta. El pan se moldeaba en hogazas individuales para que los feligreses las repartieran en la iglesia, entre amigos y familiares o entre los desfavorecidos de su comunidad.

 

“La compasión hacia nuestro prójimo debe ser triple: si pecan contra nosotros, debemos perdonarlos. Si se desvían del camino de integridad moral y verdad, debemos guiarlos. Si están en necesidad, debemos ayudarlos”. – St. Anthony of Padua
