St. Anthony of Padua Quotations

Saint Anthony Preaching to the Fish 1

“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.” 

“When you look into muddy or choppy water, you will not see your face reflected. If you want the face of Christ, who looks on you, to be reflected within you, come away from the disturbance of exterior things, and let your soul be at peace.”

“The saints are like the stars, who, in His providence, Christ hides under a seal, lest they appear whenever they wish. Instead, they are always ready to disembark from the quiet of contemplation into the works of mercy at the time decided upon by God, whenever their heart should hear the word of command.”

“Listen to the word of God, O ye fishes of the sea and of the river, seeing that the faithless heretics refuse to do so.”

“The breadth of charity widens the narrow heart of the sinner.”

“Actions speak louder than words. Let your words teach and your actions speak.”

“The life of the body is the soul. The life of the soul is Christ.”

“The spirit of humility is sweeter than honey, and those who nourish themselves with this honey produce sweet fruit.”

“Attribute to God every good that you have received.”

“The wisdom of God is reflected in the face of the soul. She will see God as he is, and she will know as she is known.”
