Inline citations needed[edit]

A recent IP editor added several reference requests. Basically one to almost every paragraph that didn't have citations. The actual problem is that most of the article is based on the references listed in the "Reference" section. I have since tagged the overall article with the proper template instead of the individual ones that weren't really tagging anything specific. The IP editor also removed a validly cited sentence related to the tongue that I have restored. P.S. As I get some time if someone doesn't beat me to it I will try to provide some of the inline citations. Marauder40 (talk) 12:30, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Second fastest canonized[edit]

If I got the maths correct the time to canonization was 1 year minus 14 days in the case of Anthony and 1 year minus 12 days in case of Peter of Verona. That would make Anthony actually the fastest canonized person of all "beating" Peter by two days. Can anyone please check this and correct the article, if necessary. --Proofreader (talk) 16:50, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Removed from article, ref needed[edit]

In the Indian state of Kerala, St. Antony's Shrine Kaloor , situated at the heart of the growing metropolitan city of Cochin, is a shelter and refuge for countless devotees who gather here on every Tuesday seeking the powerful mediation and divine help from St. Antony. It is a haven of peace and prayer for people from all cast and creed. It is a fact that thousands got heavenly offers like relief from deceases , getting jobs, free from complex problems and similar miracles. The traffic in city is usually heavy on Tuesdays due to the large crowd flow towards St. Antony's Shrine. Hafspajen (talk) 20:37, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

I removed the section since it has notability issues. Nothing clearly establishes that this Shrine to St. Anthony is any more notable then the hundreds of other Shrines to him throughout the world. The fact that an article about the Shrine doesn't even exist yet within the English WP is a hint to that. I suggest the original author first find some reliable sources and develop a separate article. You can look at the following page for 3 other Shrines or chapels to St. Anthony that are already on WP Shrine of St. Anthony, not including his main church in Italy.

It could be notable though, in Kerala. The Christianity in Kerala is historically a rather particular form of ancient Christianity, and it could very well be a notable shrine, even if we can't find those sources, due to language barriers. Hafspajen (talk) 12:57, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, there would be no problem adding the information with any sources to either the Kerala article or the Christianity in Kerala article, just not the root Anthony of Padua article.Marauder40 (talk) 13:49, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
