Saint Anthony of Padua Biography – Book and Movie Reviews

In the article St. Anthony of Padua – Patron Saint of Lost Things I’ ve presented the short biography of the famous saint, miracles he worked, popular devotions and prayers to St. Anthony and how he is traditionally portraited.

In my family, we venerate and adore this popular saint. Usually, pray to him when we cannot find lost items or when we search for a parking place.  Recently I made a pilgrimage to Padua.  The visit of the Basilica of St. Anthony impressed me very much. I decided to learn more about his life.

Below are the reviews of both my favorite book and the movie on  Saint Anthony of Padova biography. I highly recommend reading and watching both of them to everyone who wants to know more about one of the most popular Saints in Christian history.

Customer review: “I love this film. So moving and inspirational. It left me the desire to be closer to God through St. Anthony and to imitate the virtues he practiced. Highly recommend it. I didn’t mind following the film with English subtitles, in fact, I enjoyed the Italian language. I’m keeping it to watch it again to boost fervor towards God and this saint. One thing: If you are ordering this film from the UK, you will get a hefty tax added when you collect it, so it’s worth checking how much each provider charges for the tax BEFORE delivery.”
