St. Antony of Padua [15 august 1195 – 13 june1231] was a Portuguese catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan order.He is very much loved by Jesus that, he was even seen holding the child Jesus in his arms, unspeakably beautiful and surrounded with heavenly light, due to which St. Antony is often depicted holding the child Jesus.
We, from the beginning till now, have become whatever we are with the abundant blessings of the lord almighty through the assistance from our heavenly patron St. Antony of Padua. He is exemplary, for the teachers as one among the best teachers of all times, for students by the obedience, respect and sincerity he possessed and to all of us by the great message of love, humbleness and sacrifice he shown us through his life.
His words and deeds provide us with complete guidance and constant leadership to service in love. And as the holy bible say, “By God’s grace, we are what we are.”[1 Cor. 15:10].
