St. Anthony's protection manifests itself particularly towards very young children. This is evident in a series of miracles performed on children by the Thaumaturge.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

These terrible words of St. Anthony’s against the vice of usury, which was very widespread in the XII century, especially in the city of Padua, to the point of driving hundreds of poor families into despair.

“Confession, the door to paradise!”

St. Anthony was the first great minister of Reconciliation. Very often he didn't even eat so that he could continue with confessions until the evening; even though at times he was demanding, he always showed great compassion for everybody.
