Dear Friends of the Shrine of St. Anthony,

Blessed Christmas!

The most common depiction of Saint Anthony is the one where Anthony is holding the Christ Child. This image goes back to the story of that night Count Tiso was passing by Anthony's room when he was attracted by a powerful light. At first he thought that it must be a fire, and so he burst into the room. There he saw Anthony in ecstasy embracing the Infant Jesus. Anthony begged Tiso not to tell anyone what he had seen, and Tiso respected the Saint's wishes until after his death.

Like Saint Anthony we are all called to carry the Lord in our lives. The Shrine is a perfect place to come and pray and meditate on the Incarnation-God becoming a human person.

I invite you to come to the Shrine and participate in our daily Eucharistic Liturgies, celebrate the Lord's Mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or sit in the chapel before the manger and contemplate God's love for God's people.

May this Christmas season be a time of renewed love for the Incarnation and may we share that love of the Lord with all we meet in 2017!


Fr. Michael E. Heine, OFM Conv.
Director of The Shrine of St. Anthony and Carrollton Hall
