Daily Catholic Quote from St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua

“Earthly riches are like the reed. Its roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul.” (St. Anthony of Padua, Doctor of the Church)


June 13 is the Memorial of St. Anthony, Priest and Doctor of the Church (c.a. 1195 – 1231)
