Have you ever come across a person that captured your attention and left you wanting to learn more about them? Maybe you wondered, just who is that man? (or woman?) One such person that intrigued me in my younger years was Saint Anthony of Padua. Mainly because I was taught the prayerful phrase, “Tony, Tony, look around…something’s lost and can’t be found.” I was curious why we ask Saint Anthony for help when we lose something. Was it because he lost things when he was a child?
As I researched this pious person, I found some interested things about him. Take the quiz below and you can learn more about this spiritual role model too.
