In the spring of 1231, St. Anthony grew ill and withdrew to a friary at Camposampiero where he had a treehouse built in a walnut tree as a hermitage. There he preached, taught, prayed, and prepared for death. He passed from this life on June 13th, 1231.

Inspired by this great Saint and Doctor of the Church, Catholic Treehouse is dedicated to providing resources to help people perfect their love of their Creator, the perfect love that is called “the state of Christian Perfection”.
