"St. Anthony’s Bread as it is practiced today came about in the year 1888. At that time there lived in Toulon, France, a devout young woman named Louise Bouffier, who managed a small bakery store. One morning Louise couldn’t open the door with her key. Neither could a locksmith, who told her he would have to break the door open. While he went to get his tools, Louise promised St. Anthony she would give some bakery breads to the poor if the door could be opened without force. When the locksmith returned, she begged him to try just once more. And sure enough the door sprung open. Louise kept her promise, the hungry were happy and thus began the charitable practice of giving bread to the poor for favors received through the intercession of St. Anthony."
