Padua loved and admired its saint a great deal, its very own Saint Anthony! Indeed, he continues to be famous and favoured in all Christendom even today. His life sketch in this book is a further inspiration to the reader to turn to him with even greater confidence. There is much more to this most affable of saints than the attribute of finding lost articles. Preacher par excellence, Anthony, a thorough Franciscan, is known to have made such a powerful impact on his listeners as to enable many who had gone astray to find their way back to the fold. That he achieved this transformation in others not merely through his preaching but largely by way of personal example is what this book highlights.

In 1534 Parliament passed the Act of Supremacy making the King head of the English Church. Thomas was asked to subscribe to the oath, he refused and was charged with high treason.
