Saint Anthony of Padua - June 13th

Fernando Martins de Bulhões - Anthony of Padua - a Portuguese Catholic saint, born in the late
C12th in Lisbon, who died in Padua, Italy.

Ischia Ponte has a church (built in 1740) dedicated to the saint, cared for by the small group
of monks who still live in the adjacent monastery - once the home of the Poor Clare sisters
(the 'Clarisse'), who had been moved there from the nunnery on the Castello Aragonese islet.

Sant'Antonio is venerated as the Patron Saint of:
American Indians; animals; barrenness; Brazil; the elderly; faith in the Blessed Sacrament;
fishermen; Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land; harvests; horses; lost articles; lower animals;
mail; mariners; oppressed people; poor people; Portugal; pregnant women; seekers of lost articles;
shipwrecks; starvation; sterility; swineherds; Tigua Indians; travel hostesses; travellers... and watermen
