In Photos: St Anthony Of Padua Goes On Tour In Ireland

by | 17th, October 2013

THE relic of St Anthony of Padua is on tour in Ireland. The meet and greet marks the 750th anniversary of the discovery of the saint’s remains by St Bonaventure in 1263. This year, St Anthony’s aged flesh has visited New York, California, Chicago, Canada and South Australia. Soon it will be in Britain.

Fr Mario Conte, international editor of the Messenger of St Anthony magazie tells the Catholic Herald:

There is nothing at all superstitious about relics, he said: “It’s love that is the real meaning of a relic, a link of love between you and that person.”

The relics have been on show at the Church of the Visitation, in Fairview Dublin.
