Blessed Anthony of Milan Biography

  • Antonio of Milano
  • Anthony Cantoni
  • Anthony Cantoni of Milan

Blessed Anthony of Milan was one of three Franciscans that were assigned to Armenia with a mission to improve the conditions of Christians there and to bring the faith to any Muslims who were open. In Arzenga, Armenia, on the first Friday in Lent, the group stood in the street and preached about Jesus to the people going to prayers.

To prevent violence in the street, the local leader ordered a stop to the preaching. The then missionaries ignored the order and returned on the following Friday. The local Muslims threatened to kill the street preachers, and the council of elders also agreed.

When it was on the third Friday, the missionaries returned, were arrested, and dragged to the city’s public square. A local Muslim man tried to defend them and spoke against violence, but he was killed right on the spot. The mob suddenly then turned on the Franciscans, attacking with swords, dismembering the men before finally killing them. Anthony was finally martyred.
