Patron Saint of St. Anthony’s Institutions
The ideal of St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua is a Portuguese Catholic Saint, born in 1195. Born in a very rich family of nobility, he wanted to be a popular man, in the eyes of the world. Hence, his family arranged sound education for him at the local cathedral school. But God's plan was different. Against the wish of his family, Anthony entered the Augustinian Abbey of St. Vincent on the outskirts of Lisbon. He studied Scripture and Latin classics.

After his ordination to priesthood, Anthony was strongly attracted to the simple Gospel lifestyle of the Franciscan friars. In February 1220, news arrived that the five Franciscans had been martyred in Morocco. Anthony meditated on the heroism of these Franciscans. He wanted to obey God's call to leave everything and follow him.

In the Franciscan Order, he became a popular preacher of the Gospel. At the Papal court, his preaching was hailed as a "Jewel case of the Bible". Saint Anthony died on 13 June, 1231 at the age of 36. When he passed away, it is said that the children cried in the streets and that all the bells of the churches rang on their own accord, rung by angels come to earth to honor the death of the Saint. He is known to have become the "quickest" saint in the history of the Catholic Church. St. Anthony of Padua is also known as 'Miracle Worker'. People plead for his intercession in times of difficulty. May St. Anthony intercede for us and God bless our Institution.

As you step into the portals of the St. Anthony's Institutions be committed, convinced, disciplined, determined and dedicated to achieve the goal, the goal of a better tomorrow, the goal of your future. Every best with God's blessings!

"We are living in an information driven society which bombards us indiscriminately with data, all treated as being equal in importance, and which leads to remarkable superficiality in the area of moral discernment. In response, we need to provide an education which teaches critical thinking and encourages the development of mature moral values."                                            - Pope Francis
