Finding Saint Anthony: A Story of Loss and Light

  • Finding Saint Anthony: A Story of Loss and Light

Over the centuries, Saint Anthony of Padua has been elevated as a great example of holiness through countless works of art and sculpture. Many Catholics, and even non-Catholics, think of Saint Anthony as the first one to turn to when something is lost. Yet amid this widespread veneration and devotion, we may miss the story of one who began his life like all of us. 

This film reveals the journey of Fernando Martins de Bulhões, a 13th century Christian whom we know today as Saint Anthony. Here, we discover a young man who was often “lost” and searching for direction.  He wanted to make a difference in the world of his time. As we encounter his humanity, we find someone we can relate to, someone who struggled in life, someone we could have easily called a friend.

Shot on historic locations in Portugal and Italy, Finding Saint Anthony: A Story of Loss & Light is a documentary film that focuses on the experiences of Fernando (Anthony) in his search for the life God is calling him to lead. And as we look closely at the journey of Saint Anthony, what we find may surprise us: a reflection of ourselves.
