This is another variety in our beautiful ‘stained glass’ plaque range.
This particular one depicts St Anthony of Padua and the Child Jesus on one side of the two panels and a Novena prayer on the other.
Anthony of Padua born Fernando Martins de Bulhões, 15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231), also known as Anthony of Lisbon, was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. He was born and raised by a wealthy family in Lisbon, Portugal, and died in Padua, Italy.
Noted by his contemporaries for his powerful preaching, expert knowledge of scripture, and undying love and devotion to the poor and the sick, he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in church history.
He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 16 January 1946.
He is also the patron saint of lost things.
