Anthony, who was a member of St Francis' Order
of Friars Minor, was renowned for his simple and persuasive preaching of
the Gospel. Here he is shown preaching on the shore at Rimini.
story told in Little Flowers of St. Francis (14th Century)
describes how Anthony, frustrated by the hard-heartedness of his human
listeners, went to the shore to describe the blessings God bestows on
his creation, even on the fish of the ocean:
"Listen to the word of God, O ye fishes of the sea and of the river, seeing that the
faithless heretics refuse to do so."
The townsfolk seeing and hearing his words were filled with joy and believed the good news he proclaimed.
