1/17/2022 – St. Anthony of Egypt

St. Anthony was born around 251 into a wealthy family, near Cairo. At that time, the Catholic Church was spreading throughout the Roman empire, although the empire remained pagan and did not recognize Catholicism. Around the year 270, both of Anthony’s parents died, and he inherited their possessions and property. He reevaluated his life in light of the teachings of the Gospels, and found that his spiritual health was in danger because of his financial gains.
