The image below comes from St Anthony’s cave, in his monastery by the Red Sea Egypt. Called the Father of Monks, St Anthony is still an inspiration today.
His ‘Life’ was written by none other than St Athanasius. Here is a short extract from his counsels to the many who came to consult him: ‘So after certain days he went in again to the mountain. And henceforth many resorted to him, and others who were suffering ventured to go in. To all the monks therefore who came to him, he continually gave this precept: “Believe on the Lord and love Him; … Pray continually; avoid vain-glory; sing psalms before sleep and on awaking; hold in your heart the commandments of Scripture; be mindful of the works of the saints that your souls being put in remembrance of the commandments may be brought into harmony with the zeal of the saints”’.
May St Anthony pray for us, and may God bless you this day.
