St. Anthony of Padua[1]

St. Anthony of Padua

“Earthly riches are like the reed. Its roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul.” (St. Anthony of Padua, Doctor of the Church)

The Memorial of St. Anthony, Priest and Doctor of the Church (c.a. 1195 – 1231) is June 13.
