Saint Anthony – One of the Most Popular Saints
Almost all Catholic churches have a St. Anthony statue on display. He is one of the most popular saints for Catholics. St. Anthony statues and St. Anthony jewelry typically shows him with a lily or holding Jesus as a child, or holding a book. Sometimes a Saint Anthony medal or a Saint Anthony pendant will have Saint Anthony holding all three of the images.
Saint Anthony is also the patron saint of lost items. Almost every Catholic adult and child knows the St. Anthony prayer for lost items:
Saint Anthony, Saint Anthony
Something’s lost and can’t be found.
