Two relics of St. Anthony of Padua will be available for Veneration at several Houston parishes from February 19-29, 2016. One of the relics is a piece of his floating rib and is the same relic that Archbishop Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, held as he led a procession in Buenos Ares, Argentina in 2000.
St. Anthony is a Doctor of the Church and is the patron saint of lost things, barren women, sailors, the poor and travelers.
