Remnant TV's CATHOLIC SAINTS AND HOLY DAYS pays homage to St Anthony--the great Franciscan preacher to the Moors.

A contemporary of St. Francis, he was only 36-years-old when he died and was canonized less than one year afterward by Pope Gregory IX.

Upon exhumation some 336 years after his death, his body was found to be corrupted, yet his tongue was totally incorrupt, so perfect were the teachings that had been formed upon it.

He is typically depicted with a book and the Infant Child Jesus and is commonly referred to today as the "finder of lost articles."

St Anthony is venerated all over the world as the Patron Saint for lost articles, and is credited with many miracles involving lost people, lost things and even lost spiritual goods.
