The Feast of St. Anthony of Egypt

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 always love you above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Saint Anthony, pray for us, for the Christians of Egypt and for all monks.


  1. I was so happy to read St. Anthony of Egypt instead of St. Anthony the Great!
    My father was born in Cario and St. Anthony is his favourite/patron saint. The reference to Egypt has a sweet echo to me =)
