Pray for Our Country: Novena to St. Anthony

On one occasion, a visitor saw Anthony enraptured and holding the infant Jesus in his arms. The two seemed to be surrounded by a heavenly mist. The report of this vision inspired many depictions of the saint after his death. He is often shown in art holding the infant Jesus in his arm because of this famous apparition with the Christ child.

Saint Ann, Wonder Worker of Heaven

Saint Ann is the mother of the Immaculate Conception, the grandmother of Jesus—God—the creator of the universe, and the mother-in-law of Saint Joseph, the foster father and caretaker of the earthly life of Jesus.
