January 17th

Today the Church commemorates Saint Anthony of Egypt (251-356), hermit, “Patriarch of Monks,” and opponent of Arianism.

“O God, who brought the Abbot Saint Anthony to serve you by a wondrous way of life in the desert, grant, through his intercession, that, denying ourselves, we may love you above all things.”
