ST. ANTHONY DE PADUA: Pilgrimage to Our Beloved Patron Saint in Padova, Italy (A Pilgrim’s Photo Essay)

Pilgrimage to St. Anthony de Padova-97.jpg

ST. ANTHONY OF PADUA (or PADOVA in Italian) is a Miracle Worker, the Hammer of Heretics, and more popularly known as the Patron Saint of Finding Things & Lost People.

He is my patron saint, and my mother always prayed to him for guidance and protection when I was growing up. Also, a lot of businessmen in Manila have St. Anthony as their patron saint because he often intercedes and blesses their businesses to be successful.

I finally had the chance of a lifetime to go on a pilgrimage to St. Anthony Basilica early this year in Padova, Italy. This is where his blessed body lies after his death on June 13, 1231. We celebrate the feast day of St. Anthony on June 13 to commemorate his blessedness.

Here is the photo essay of our Pilgrimage to St. Anthony de Padua Basilica to kick off the Northern Italy series in OAP:
