Anthony of Padua
Sicut turris defendit castrum sic humilitas cordis defendit castitatem corporis a iaculis fornicationis.
Anthony of Padua quotes
He knew everything in Scriptures and used to quote it by heart; he knew even its most arcane and difficult passages.
Anthony of Padua
Sicut radix portat arborem, sic humilitas animam. Spiritus humilitatis est super mel dulcis, quo qui regitur dulcia poma facit.




Anthony of Padua quotes
Si quaeris miracula,
Mors, error, calamitas,
Daemon, lepra fugiunt,
Aegri surgunt sani.
Cedunt mare, vincula:
Membra resque, perditas
Petunt et accipiunt
Iuvenes et cani.
Pereunt pericula,
Cessat et necessitas:
Narrent hi, qui sentiunt,
Dicant Paduani.
Anthony of Padua
Sollicitudo mentem distrahit, distractam dividit, divisam diabolus rapit, et sic animam interficit.
Anthony of Padua quotes
Stellae sunt sancti, quos Christus sub signaculo suae providentiae claudit, ne appareant quando velint, semper parati ad tempus a Deo statutum, ut, cum audierint aure cordis vocem iubentis, a secreto contemplationis egrediantur ad opera necessitatis.
