Write your prayer to Saint Anthony now: it will be printed and placed by the Friars on the Saint's Tomb.
Light a virtual candle to entrust to him your intention, to thank him or to remember those who are no longer with us.
Saint Anthony is always in our lives, besides us.
But sometimes, when taken by the frenzy of life's daily problems, we forget about him. For this reason the Friars of the Basilica of Padua have prepared a small, but heartfelt thought for all his devotees.
Fill now the fields of the appropriate form on the side/below and create your digital "Holy Card".
You can personalize it with your name or that of a loved one, so as to give it as a gift or use it as a wallpaper on your phone. It will help you feel the presence of our beloved Saint every day, by your side.
N.B. Once downloaded, you will find your digital "Holy Card" among the images in the Gallery or in the Archive folder of your mobile phone or in the Downloads folder of your computer.
Every day we Friars of the Basilica of St. Anthony help children and families in difficulty, the disabled and the sick, the homeless and the poor, throughout the world.
We do this by carrying out the task that Saint Anthony entrusted to us. But to continue doing this we need your help so that Saint Anthony's hands will be your hands, Saint Anthony's heart will be your heart.
