Health

For those who have lost their health

There are many stories about St. Anthony healing those who were sick, both during his lifetime and after he had died.

One time, the father of a child who could not walk and who suffered from epilepsy saw Anthony waling through the streets of Padua. He begged St. Anthony to make the sign of the cross over her. When St. Anthony did this, the child was immediately cured of her infirmities.

After his death, many people would come to his tomb in Padua to pray for his intercession. There was a certain woman from Germany named Caroline who had been blind for seven years. Her friends brought her to Padua and led her to the tomb. After praying for a short while, she realized that her sight had been restored.
