Over the centuries, Saint Anthony of Padua, has been accliamed as a great example of holiness through countless works of art, sculpture and books. Many Catholics, and even non-Catholics, think of Saint Anthony as the first one to turn to when something is lost. Yet amid this widespread veneration and devotion, we may miss the story of a man who began his life like all of us.
This film reveals the journey of Fernado Martins de Bulhoes, a 13th century Christian who we know today as St. Anthony. Here, we discover a young man who was often "lost" and searching for direction in his life. He wanted to make a difference in the world of his time. As we encounter his humanity, we find someone we can relate to, someone who struggled in life, someone we could have easily called a friend.
Shot on historic locations in Portugaland Italy,
Finding St. Anthony: A Story of Loss & Light is a documentary film that focuses on the experiences of Fernando (Anthony) in his search for the life God is calling him to lead. And as we look closely at the journey of St. Anthony , what we find may surprise us: a reflection of ourselves. His story gives us insight and inspiration for our spiritual journey.
" With his outstanding gifts of intelligence, balance, apostolic zeal and, primarly, mystic fervor, Anthony contributed significantly to the development of Franciscan spirituality."
-Pope Benedict XVI
