Padua and its Saint
“Ancestral disputes between families were fixed, prisoners were given freedom and many of those who had gained money illegally returned it, sometimes publically, leaving their titles and money at the feet of St. Anthony, so that he could return it to the legitimate owner. Prostitutes were liberated from the vile market and thieves were hold back from taking others’ possessions”.
From an old biography of Saint Antonio
