św. Antonii

The saint patronizes people and things that have gone missing. Additionally, it is the patron saint of Lisbon, Padua, Padeborn and Split. In Poland, it is the patron of: Brodnica, Jasło, Rybnik, Lipno, Przeworsk, Tomaszów Mazowiecki and Lublin. He also patronizes the Order of Franciscans, Antonines, many fraternities and churches. His support can be counted on by miners, married couples, fiancées, midwives, travelers and the poor. St. Antoni was born into a wealthy, religious family. At baptism, he was given the name Ferdinand. He entered a convent at a very young age. He chose the Regular Canons of St. Augustine. There he read a lot, mainly from the holy books and Latin classics. In time, he moved to the Abbey of the Holy Cross in Coimbra. There, far from his family home, nothing prevented him from studying the books. He was ordained a priest in 1219. A year later, inspired by the death of five Franciscan missionaries, he decided to leave his order and adopt the Franciscan rule. He chose the name Antoni. He wanted, like the aforementioned martyrs, to be a missionary in Morocco. His desire came true and he was allowed to go to Morocco. Unfortunately, during the trip he fell ill, which frustrated his plans. A storm in the Mediterranean Sea brought Antoni to Italy. He stayed in Assisi, where he met St. Francis. In Assisi he also met Brother Gratian, provincial of Emilia and Romagna. He took him to Forla. There he worked in a home for the poor and was also a missionary in Lombardy. He also had time to study theology and deepen his knowledge. He became the chief preacher of the Franciscan Order. He was a very skilled preacher. His sermons were listened to by crowds of the faithful. He was appreciated for his knowledge, strong and confident voice. He preached mainly in the squares, because the churches were too small to accommodate all listeners. In the years 1225-1227 he stayed in France, preaching there. In 1228, he moved to Rome, where he gave a guest sermon at the request of Pope Gregory IX. The Pope was impressed by his preaching skills, so he asked Antoni to prepare sermons for all holy days (Sundays). He wrote them for about 3 years. During this time, he also wrote Sermons for the holidays. From May 30, 1227 he was the Provincial of Emilia-Romagna. He also worked as a lecturer in Toulouse, Montpellier and Bologna. He was a provincial for three years. He relinquished his function because he wanted to rest in Padua and regenerate his strength there. During his lifetime, he was to have a vision of the Baby Jesus, which assured him of God’s love for people. He died in the monastery of St. Mary of Padua in 1231. The cause of death was water swelling. He only lived 36 years. He was buried in Padua, where the basilica of his name was built over time. Currently, it is one of the most popular sanctuaries in Europe.
