Tomorrow is the feast of St.Antony the Great, Father of monasticism in all the World and who started this spiritual revolution in the deserts of Egypt. May his blessing be with us all and Glory to God forever and ever. Amen.

In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)

Amen! Smiley

My sins run out behind me and I do not see them, but today I am coming to judge the errors of another.

*sigh* My heart always skips a beat at mention of his name... After two nights of vigil and praise, I can add a whole-hearted "Amen!" with Antonious (I envy you your name).

There are many documents pertaining to my beloved father over at http://coptichymns.net if any are interested in reading more about and by him. Smiley
Also, some of his quotes are up at http://copticstudents.com under the Saint of the Month heading.


Amen, maranatha!
