He is one of the great saints of the Catholic Church, and one of the
beloved--even far beyond Catholics themselves. Untold numbers of

Saint Anthony Quote - Earthly Riches Are Like The Reed
"Earthly riches are like the reed. Its roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul." -St. Anthony of Padua
