St Anthony of Padua was born in Portugal in 1195 to a wealthy family. He turned his back on riches to become a poor Franciscan priest. He was known during his lifetime for his amazing preaching and miracles. His association with finding lost items comes from the story that after his death, one of his treasured prayer books was lost. After many prayers the book was returned by a young novice who had “borrowed” it. He was urged to bring it back by a vision of St Anthony scolding him for taking it!

St Anthony is the patron of:
finding lost items
infertility
