St. Anthony Novena – Day 4, Friend of the poor

Today’s theme is St. Anthony, father of the poor, comforter of the needy. Fr. Mario reminds us that Anthony not only preached about the plight of the poor, he also tried to remedy the situation through tangible works of charity together with his fellow friars. 

Nowadays the friars of the Basilica still help poor people through St. Anthony’s Charities, the charitable organization of the Basilica of St. Anthony. If you wish to support St. Anthony’s Charities, please visit the website:
