“The Tongue of a Saint”

St.Anthony of Padua

Today is St. Anthony’s day.
Most ask him for divine intervention to help find a missing keychain, moments before heading out the door.
But St. Anthony is so much more. His documented miracles include his own Lazarus; the rising of a dead man to prove his own father’s innocence in his murder. There is documented recording of this in the village where St. Anthony’s family lived.
His preaching was so eloquent that even the fish in the ocean lifted their heads out of the water to listen.
St. Francis spoke to the birds; St. Anthony, to the creatures of the sea.
Perhaps that is why his tongue has remained uncorrupted and can still be visited in Padua, Italy.
The holiness of his words could not be destroyed by death.
The Catholic Church hands out bread for St. Anthony today.
Next time you lose your keyring, say a prayer to St. Anthony. He will help you find it. But also remember, his story holds so much more.
