In Honor of St. Anthony of Padua

Saint Anthony of Padua, you endured much discouragement in your life before finding your calling. Help us to find patience in our own lives, and to trust God to lead us where we need to go. You preached by example; help us show others through example the truth of our faith. Amen.

St. Anthony of Padua, pray for us!

  6. Too cute! St. Anthony is one of my favorites.

  7. I love these. How do the children play with them? Or are they for teaching purposes or display.
    God Bless

  8. Thank you everyone! I wasn't sure I would be able to paint the Child Jesus in St. Anthony's arms, but he must have helped me! =)

    Gae ~ My children love playing with the saints. I often hear my girls acting out little saint stories with them, singing songs, etc... just as they would do with any other little dolls. They work particularly well with the Melissa and Doug Castle and Doll houses.

    I posted some pictures of the castle here:
