Help you can rely on!!

Truly St. Anthony is more than a finder of lost keys...even though he does that too!
I have more recently come to rely on St. Anthony to walk with me through a "trip through hell, backwards." The trip is bad enough; backwards is awful.
My husband of 34 years died after a relatively short period. As a result, I am left very much alone to face challenges I never dreamed of! However, even though I am not finished, I have received incredible help so far that can only be attributed to divine intervention - i.e., St. Anthony's intercession on my behalf.

Anthony of Padua

I have gotten to know St Anthony better with this book. He has always granted me so many favors/intercessions. He never ceases to amaze me. He truly is a wonder worker.
Thank you for publishing this book.
I would also like to know where I could purchase the first book entitled “The Life”.

Good overall introduction but very repetitive.


Luv it

St. Anthony of Padua: His Life, Legends and Devotions

It is an interesting book, more as a collection of previously published essays than an original work but suffices for its purpose.
