Proper on page 1304.
One of the greatest Franciscan Saints, St. Anthony was a profound theologian, a brilliant preacher, a formidable foe to heresy, and a terror to heretics, through the supernatural forces which seemed always at his command.  He was born in Lisbon, but labored chiefly in Italy, where he died A.D. 1231.
