Find Your Way
It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas (yet) but the opening of school. Parents are ecstatic to have their children back in the classrooms and even students are eager to get back to their studies. Saint Anthony was a great theologian. One day he went to ask Saint Francis if he could teach Theology to the friars. Francis responded in a positive way but cautioned Anthony that their studies should not extinguish the spirit of prayer and devotion. All academic work should lead on to the God who made all things. Why not come to the Shrine this fall and ask Saint Anthony for his intercession to make sure this 2014-2015 school year will be the best!
