St. Anthony Mary
He studied medicine at Padua; received his doctorate at age 22. Working among the poor in Cremona, he felt called to the religious life. Bequeathing his inheritance to his mother, the Saint worked as a catechist, and was ordained at age 26; Tradition says that Angels were seen around the altar at his first Mass.
The characteristic devotions of the Barnabites are to the Eucharist, the Crucifix, the Sacred Heart and Our Lady, the Mother of Divine Providence.
Prayer from the Collect:
Lord, enable us to grasp in the spirit of Saint Paul, the sublime wisdom of Jesus Christ, the wisdom which inspired Saint Anthony Zaccaria to preach the message of salvation in Thy Church.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
