We donated tonight, an image of Saint Anthony to the Chapel of Saint Padre Pio thru its Parish Priest & our long time family friend Father Anton Pascual.
Every year, in honor of our kids Antonia & Antonio, Julius & I donate a blessed image of either Saint Anthony & SaintPadre Pio to a chosen Parish.
This actually started when I was still pregnant with Antonia. With her in my tummy and days before i was due to birth, Julius and I donated a 3 ft size image of Saint Anthony to the chapel of St Lukes at E.Rod QC.
When Antonio was born, we started to donate two images to parishes- that of Saint Anthony & Saint Pio .
This is to propagate also the devotion to our two favorite Saints.
As Catholics, we dont need to be reminded that it is God The Father First, then Jesus His Only Son, Then Mama Mary and then the Saints who showed Faithfulness & devotion to God in their lifetime. These Saints are the army of God, just like us- steadfast in prayer- steadfast in Faith. This is the importance of Saints in our Catholic Lives. ????????. To our fellow Catholics & devotees, thru the intercession of Saints, may you remain steadfast in your Faith. Be Saint-like. Be Saintly. Do Good. Pray.
Pray unceasingly just like these Saints who exemplified a life of prayer .
