By Helen W. Searle Anthony, or in Italian Antony, was born in northwest Italy to the noble Bonfadini family of Ferrara in 1402. Raised according to the style of the privileged class during the later part of the Middle Ages, Anthony learned how to read and write but otherwise enjoyed the amusements and lei- sure of court life. By the age of forty he had closed the door on this com- fortable existence, joined the Order of Saint Francis, received his doctor- ate in theology, and was an or- dained priest. The remaining forty years of his life Anthony spent preaching throughout Italy and as a missionary to the Holy Land. He is credited with many conversions. In 1482 he was returning from a trip to the Holy Land and stopped to preach in Co- tignola, on the coast in southern It- aly. He became very ill and sud- denly died there at an inn for pil- grims. After his death many miracles were attributed to him. During this period of history the veneration of saints played an im- portant role in devotions. As Saint Maximus of Turin (c. 467) wrote, these were people who were familiar with humanity. Each occupation had a saint who served both as a patron (support) and an intercessor (go-be- tween), like Saint Julian for innkeep- ers or Saint Nicholas for grocers. Other saints were invoked for other special needs, like Saint Denis for headaches or Saint Eustachius for family troubles. The people of Cotig- nola credit the favors of intercession to "their" Blessed Antony Bonfadini in sparing them great calamities in 1630, 1686 and 1696. Blessed Antony's incorrupt body was transferred to the Church of the Observant in 1495 and in 1666 a special chapel was built in his mem- cry. More than four hundred years after his death, Pope Leo XlII ap- proved his papers of saintdom. The following year, 1902, his body was officially recognized as incorrupt. During World War II his glass reli- quary was shattered by aerial bomb- ings but the sacred relic, according to the last official examination in 1945, remains unharmed. Each year in Cotignola the relic is exposed for veneration on the week after Easter Sunday. Anthony Bonfadini is not a full "Saint" on the Roman calendar but has received the title of Beatus (Blessed) a step in the canonization process. Dr Billy S Martin, Representative at Large from Evangelical Baptist Missions (EBM), will speak at Sink- ing Creek Baptist Church April 23 through 29 at 7:30 p.m. each eve- ning. Dr Martin has had a varied background of ministry, having served as pastor, evangelist, and Bible college professor prior to as- suming his present responsibilities with EMB. His ministry has allowed him to travel widely in the United States and Canada, and to South America, Africa, Europe, and the Near East. His academic preparation in- cludes an undergraduate degree from Piedmont Bible College in Win- ston-Salem, and a graduate degree as well as a Doctor of Divinity de- gree from Bob Jones University in Greeville. He has also studied at Elon College in North Carolina. He is pastor of the Urban Street Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, and in his extensive evangelistic ministry in that city. He has con- ducted 76 campaigns in Winston- Salem alone. An accomplished Bible student, Dr Martin's expository messages will provide Biblical answers for some of life's baffling problems. The public is invited to attend these services as guest of Sinking Creek Baptist Church. For more information, call 392-5741.
