St. Anthony of Padua and the Miracle of the Mule – Beccafumi

Saint Anthony of Padua was challenged by a Jewish man to prove God's existence in the Holy Eucharist. This artwork depicts the beautiful story of the mule, which chose to kneel before the Holy Eucharist rather than eat oats, after being starved for three days. Artwork by D. Beccafumi
