Box 130 Westfield, NY 14787 [email protected] 1-800-647-8839 History Tidbit of the Week: St. Anthony, The Abbot Anthony was born at Coma, in Egypt, about the middle of the third century. He was the son of wellto-do parents, and on their death, in his twentieth year, he inherited their possessions. He had a desire to imitate the life of the Apostles and the early Christians, and one day, on hearing in the church the Gospel words, "If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell all thou hast", he received them as spoken to himself, disposed of all his property and goods, and devoted himself exclusively to religious exercises. After fifteen years of this life, at the age of thirty-five, Anthony was determined to withdraw from the habitations of men and retire in absolute solitude. He crossed the Nile, and on a mountain near the east bank, he found an old fort into which he shut himself, and lived there for twenty years without seeing the face of man, food being thrown to him over the wall. He was at times visited by pilgrims, whom he refused to see; but gradually a number of would-be disciples established themselves in caves and in huts around the mountain, Thus a colony was formed, who begged Anthony to come forth and be their guide in the spiritual life. At length, about the year 305, he yielded to their importunities an emerged from his retreat, and, to the surprise of all, he appeared to be as when he had gone in, not emaciated, but vigorous in body and mind. For about six years, he devoted himself to the instruction and organization of the great body of monks that had grown up around him; but then he once again withdrew into the inner desert that lay between the Nile and the Red Sea, where still stands the monastery that bears his name, Der Mar Antonios. Here he spent the last forty-five years of his life, in a seclusion, not as strict as previously, for he freely saw those who came to visit him, and he used to cross the desert with considerable frequency. On two occasions, he went to Alexandria, once to strengthen the Christian martyrs in the persecution of 311, and once at the close of his life, around 350, to preach against the Arians. He died at the age of a hundred and five, and St. Jerome places his death around 356-357. At Anthony’s request, his grave was kept secret by the two disciples who buried him, lest his body should become an object of reverence.
