St Anthony of Padua was born to wealth, but for the sake of Christ he became a poor Franciscan priest. A gifted speaker, he attracted crowds everywhere he went, speaking in multiple tongues; legend says that even the fish loved to listen. One of the most beloved of saints, his images and statues are found everywhere. He died in 1231, was canonized in 1232, and on January 16, 1946, he was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church. His memorial day is June 13.
