O God, who by thy Holy Spirit didst enable thy servant Antony to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil: Give us grace, with pure hearts and minds, to follow thee, the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Today is the Feast of Saint Antony of Egypt “The Great”. He was age 18 when he was inspired by the words of the Gospel to live as a monk, living a life of penitence, poverty, prayer and manual work. He lived until age 105, passing to eternal life on this day in 356 in Egypt. pic.twitter.com/ueO0laVSzQ
