St. Anthony of Padua, beloved miracle worker and one of the most popular saints in Christian history, sacrificed wealth, popularity and family for the Kingdom of God. Born into a Portuguese noble family in 1195, Anthony defied his father's wishes to become a knight and, instead, followed the call of God to become a monk. Joining the Franciscans, Anthony became renowned for his powerful preaching and the miracles that won countless souls to Christ. The film follows his travels through Italy, his mission to Morocco, and his meeting with St. Francis. It beautifully portrays the power of his preaching, the holiness of his life, his love for the poor and oppressed, and the wonders of his miracles. Actor Daniele Liotti gives a truly memorable performance as St. Anthony. Filmed in Italy, top-notch acting talent and superb cinematography reveal Saint Anthony as a dynamic and appealing personality, worthy of his sainthood. The film runs ninety-five minutes.
