Saint Anthony of Padua available on DVD

Discover the life of this popular and unknown saint at the same time.

Directed by Umberto Marino, follow in the footsteps of Saint Anthony of Padua. That of a nobleman, who chooses to follow Francis of Assisi. Young and passionate, he made a radical choice by entering the convent instead of following his father's aspirations and going to war.

Preacher with the word of fire, advisor to the Pope at 35, he gave great prestige to the Franciscan order.

Synopsis : The true story of a Portuguese nobleman who, against his father's wishes, chooses the convent instead of joining his peers for war. Antonio thus passes from the statute of hidalgo to that of humble brother, disciple of Saint Francis, servant of the Church by the word rather than by the sword. He will fight, by his vigorous sermons, pride and usury, gathering around him other Franciscan friars, from Portugal to Sicily, from Africa to Greece, from Assisi to Padua, and giving his Order a European prestige.

The DVD is now available on the online store at the SAJE store. A great gift idea for Christmas, which allows you to learn more about the hectic and chivalrous life of this Saint whom we invoke when we have lost something.
