ST. ANTONY OF THE DESERT - FIRST MONK & FATHER OF THE CHURCH

Posted by livingchrist on January 13, 2014 at 12:25 AM

The feast day of St. Antony is on January 17.  This tremendous saint of God lived from 251-356 AD and established the first hermitages and monasteries in the first centuries of Christianity.  St. Anthanasius, one of his companions, a beloved follower, later became a bishop and wrote Antony's biography.  The section on discerning spirits, the wiles of the demons,  and how to deal with the evil spirits, is wonderful.  Enjoy this great teaching which is so appropriate for our times:  [enlarge the print for easier reading!]  http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/2811.htm
