Catholic Saint Anthony Catholic Marble Statue with Infant Jesus
The figure holding the baby Jesus, Catholic Saint Anthony, is a saint who protects lost objects. Around his waist hung a band of 35 fine silver ornaments called miracles, each donated by a different devotee to represent an unanswered prayer, or gratitude that it had been answered. He held the baby Jesus in a book and lovingly loved him. Jesus also reached out his little hand and touched the face of Saint Anthony. The whole marble Catholic Saint Anthony sculpture is well-proportioned with three-dimensional facial features.

The devotional service of Saint Anthony
Catholic Saint Anthony’s spiritual thought focuses on dealing with the body and sin, as well as dealing with loneliness. To despise the body, Catholic Saint Anthony thought, is to preserve the soul. Therefore, all the time should be devoted to the soul, reduce the care of the body, self-denial. However, dealing with the body alone does not complete the spiritual life. It takes a step further to deal with the evil. Catholic Saint Anthony believed that the way to deal with sin was to meditate on your own sin and God’s judgment. While dealing with the flesh and evil, the loneliness of the soul is also a level that cannot be ignored. Saint Antoine believed in solitude. Long periods of quiet solitude are the only way to see more deeply into the darkness of the mind. Even so, Catholic Saint Anthony urged the brothers to confess to each other. Saint Anthony’s spiritual approach to sin, therefore, emphasizes both personal examination and the need to confront one another in order to have a healthy monastic life.
The early life of Catholic Saint Anthony:
Catholic Saint Anthony grew up in a wealthy Christian family. Quiet and quiet since childhood, he often went to church with his family, which was different from the young people who despised faith at that time. When Saint Antoine was about eighteen or twenty years old, his parents died, and he bequeathed to him a large fortune and his only sister. Once, as Saint Anthony was walking along the road, he thought over and over how the apostles had given up everything to follow the Lord. While Catholic Saint Anthony was thinking about these things, he entered the church while the Gospel was being readout. It was Jesus who said to the rich young men, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell all you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me.” This inspired Catholic Saint Anthony so much that he kept part of his fortune to his sister, sold the rest, and gave to the poor. Then he heard another saying: “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has its share of difficulties.” Catholic Saint Anthony then gave up all his possessions and left his sister in the care of respectable and reliable virgins, and went into hermitage.
