The Life and Prayers series combines professionally researched and written biographies of iconic Christian figures with an anthology of prayers.
The Lives and Prayers of Catholic Saints: Volume I combines the stories of Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Anthony of Padua.
Saint Anthony of Padua followed Saint Francis’ Order. The two were contemporaries, though they only met a few times. How were the two saints similar and how were they different?
Saint Francis of Assisi is quite possibly the most popular of all Christian saints. Perhaps it is his adoration for all living things or his unrelenting generosity that has made so many people open their hearts to him. Perhaps it is the deep conviction and piety expressed not only by the saint himself, but in his name, in the Franciscan orders throughout the centuries.
For centuries Saint Anthony of Padua, Thaumaturgist, Evangelical Doctor of the Church, has been regaled and venerated as a wonder-worker, eminent theologian, and preacher. To him infertile women, sailors, the poor, seekers of lost articles, to name a few, have prayed to intercede. Thousands upon thousands flocked to hear him preach, and witnessed his miraculous deeds.
We hope that with this book, the reader might realize an invitation to call upon both miraculous men, in a quest to find a renewed and challenged faith, hope, and love.
