St. Anthony Claret (1807-1870)

Anthony was the founder of the Claretians. He was the confessor for Queen Isabella II, and was exiled with her. He had the gifts of miracles and prophecy. He spread devotion to the Blessed Sacrament and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in over 10,000 sermons and 200 published works.

"The zealous man desires and achieve all great things and he labors strenuously so that God may always be better known, loved and served in this world."
-St. Anthony Claret
