How would you like to find yourself kneeling in front of St.Anthony’s Tomb?

Standard

Fr. Joseph Mary and Deacon Tom Fox blessing religious articles purchased by the pilgrims

Did you know that the famous St. Anthony of Padua was one of the most famous Saints in the Catholic Church? Today, our pilgrim group spent time in the Basilica of St. Anthony in Padua, Italy…We saw his tunic and yes, only Catholics get excited about these kind of things – his incorrupt tongue and vocal cords! They are kept in a reliquary in a nearby chapel with relics from Franciscan Friars.

Cobblestone streets, gelato stands, ancient buildings, plazas with pigeons and street vendors reminiscent of Fiesta in San Antonio! What a day…as my friends sit next to me eating a gelato – what flavor? Try Lemon and strawberry!

Tomorrow – Venice!
