This St. Anthony of Padua medal 5/8" is on an 18" chain. This St. Anthony medal is tin cut for a bright shine effect.
St. Anthony of Padua was the son of a knight of the court of King Alfonso II. In 1221, he joined the Franciscans and went on a mission to Morocco but soon returned because of ill health. Settling in Padua, he reformed the city and aided the poor. Anthony died at a Poor Clare Convent on June 13, 1231. He is often pictured holding the Christ Child because of a vision he had seen the Child in brilliant rays of light clinging with both arms around Anthony’s neck.
