This book contains prayers and devotions dedicated to the memory of Saint Anthony of Padua, a Franciscan priest who travelled widely and was renowned for his charisma and spiritual depth. Originally written in German centuries ago, this collection of litanies and prayers provide the reader with context into the significance and events of St. Anthony's life. The adventures which characterized his motions from wandering contemplator of faith, to popular public preacher of renown, are not detailed beyond the introduction - rather the reader is treated to a happy consequence of his tireless efforts to preach the word of God; the many devotions that were written in his name. The piety inspired by St. Anthony is in ample evidence; his preaching drew crowds of thousands and ignited great fervor in the peoples of Northern Italy, in and around the city of Padua. Anthony's early death at the age of thirty-six was met with great sorrow and mourning. The Catholic church commissioned a series of devotional passages to his memory, that his name be saluted and celebrated for centuries to follow. The frequent miracles performed at Anthony of Padua's gravesite led his friend in life, Pope Gregory IX, to confer the status of Saint upon him.

This newly reprinted collection of prayers is the "Irish" version of the popular St. Anthony's Treasury. This older version of the Treasury was printed with the permission of William Joseph Walsh, Archbishop of Dublin in 1885-1921. Besides devotions to St. Anthony, it contains many prayers to St. Patrick, St. Bridget, and other beloved Irish saints. St. Anthony of Padua (1195-1231, feast day June 13), was a Portuguese Franciscan and one of the most beloved Saints of the Catholic Church. He was declared Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII in 1946. As the Roman Breviary says of him: "His wisdom and fluency were very marked, and drew on him such admiration of men, that the Pope, once hearing him preach, called him 'The Ark of the Covenant.' One of his chief points was to expend all his strength in attacking heresies, whence he gained the name of the Heretics' Everlasting Hammer." St. Anthony was traditionally displayed with a flame in his hand, symbolizing his zeal for the Catholic Faith. Since our own time is so much plagued with religious indifference and immorality, may the devotion to this Franciscan preacher of peace and to the Catholic traditions of Ireland bring unto us a real zeal for our Holy Catholic Faith.

Religions of the United States in Practice is a rich anthology of primary sources with accompanying essays that examines religious behavior in America. From praying in an early American synagogue to performing Mormon healing rituals to debating cremation, Volume 1 explores faith through action from Colonial times through the nineteenth century. The documents and essays consider the religious practices of average people--praying, singing, healing, teaching, imagining, and persuading. Some documents are formal liturgies while other texts describe more spontaneous religious actions. Because religious practices also take place in the imagination, dreams, visions, and fictional accounts are also included. Accompanying each primary document is an essay that sets the religious practice in its historical and theological context--making this volume ideal for classroom use and accessible to any reader. The introductory essays explain the various meanings of religious practices as lived out in churches and synagogues, in parlors and fields, beside rivers, on lecture platforms, and in the streets. Religions of the United States in Practice offers a sampling of religious perspectives in order to approximate the living texture of popular religious thought and practice in the United States. The history of religion in America is more than the story of institutions and famous people. This anthology presents a more nuanced story composed of the everyday actions and thoughts of lay men and women.
