13 Tuesdays Novena to St. Anthony 2022

The 13 Tuesdays is a very old tradition, thought to have begun shortly after Saint Anthony’s death in 1231. Tuesday was chosen as the day for this devotion because Saint Anthony entered into eternal life on a Tuesday.
This year the 13-Tuesdays Novena begins on March 15 and will offer you the opportunity to rediscover the most famous miracles of Saint Anthony.

Every Tuesday the reflections of the friars of the Basilica will open your eyes to the great themes of faith and show you the way to follow in the concreteness of life: each of them will be a lesson, a model to imitate, an invitation to do our part.

To facilitate this in-depth journey of discovery, we have collected all the meditations in a booklet  entitled  “13-Tuesdays Novena 2022 - St. Anthony’s Miracles” which can be downloaded for free.

This booklet proposes a separate miracle of Saint Anthony every Tuesday. On the first page you will find a quote about the life of the Saint, the meditation of a friar and a prayer. In the second, some questions guide your personal reflection. Finally, there is a prayer to make you feel in communion with Saint Anthony and with all his devotees.

Every Tuesday at 6 pm CET  it will be possible to follow the live streaming of the Holy Mass and the 13 Tuesdays Novena prayer from the Basilica of St. Anthony on our website or on our Facebook page.
