This Franciscan Portuguese saint lived across the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, and was well known for his preaching, steadily rooted in the Gospels.

He said: ‘Do you want to have God always in your mind? Be just as he made you to be. Do not go seeking another “you”. Do not make yourself otherwise than he made you. Then you will always have God in mind’.

May St Antony pray for us, and may God bless you.
