Anthony of Padua (Lisbon, 15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231), born as Fernando Martins de Bulhões into a rich, noble family, was a friar who was a theologian and a Doctor of the Church - he is regarded as an important saint - he is the patron saint of the Franciscans, lost objects, women and children, the poor, bakers, miners, marriage, travellers and lovers and patron against shipwreck , the plague and fever. He is also invoked by Catholics when objects are missing. From as early as the 13th century Saint Anthony of Padua has been known for his help in finding lost objects.
Thérèse of Lisieux (born Marie-Françoise Thérèse Martin; monastery name: Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face; Alençon, 2 January 1873 - Lisieux 30 September 1897) is a French Saint and Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. Her feast day is 1 October. To distinguish her from Saint Teresa of Ávila she is also called ‘little Thérèse’. She is the patroness of missionaries and mission work, and of France and Russia.
Thérèse was beatified on 29 April 1923. Her canonisation followed on 17 May 1925. In 1997, Thérèse, as the third woman in history, was declared Doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II.
Her life is described in several books. One of her well-known sayings is: "I want to make it rain roses [=blessings] on earth”. That is why she is depicted as a Carmelite holding a crucifix and roses close to her chest.
The Boxmeerse Vaart is an ancient Holy Blood Procession that originated in the year 1400. "Pentecost early or Pentecost late, a fortnight after that, there is the Boxmeerse Vaart" is an ancient saying in Boxmeer.
The Agnus Dei is a round or oval medallion made of white beeswax mixed with Chrism and Balm (originally of the Easter candle) that is consecrated by the pope during the Holy Week once every seven years.
In addition to a call to prayer, it protects against, for instance, thunder, hail and storm, birth pains, disease and fire.
