St. Anthony of Padua was born in 1195 and died at the age of 36 in 1231. He was canonized less than one year after his death and his teaching of the Catholic Faith challenged scholars while at the same time was understood by the simple. He was made a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII in 1946 and is called the “hammer of the heretics” as he converted many to the faith. St. Anthony wanted to profess the Catholic Faith with his mind and heart at every moment so he is typically depicted with a book and the infant child Jesus, to whom He miraculously appeared, and is commonly referred to today as the “finder of lost articles .” His feat day is June 13.
