Saint Anthony of the Desert...Jan. 17th.

Not to be confused with Saint Anthony the great finder of  all things lost.  This Saint Anthony the Great is for the times we live in now.  He is a comfort.  For we remember the Way to Heaven through his life.

Saint Anthony had a vision where the whole world was full of snares and traps.

He cried to the Lord, "Oh good Lord, who may escape from these snares?"

A voice said back to him, "humility shall escape them without more. "

Thanks. I really like him. My friend I went to Medjugorje with in 1991 has loved him for twenty or so years. I just didn't know how much I needed him.

That is excellent, Carolyn. Thanks! Humility is the key to all virtue and heaven as Pride is the key to all sin and damnation. I read that one of the best guidances given to St. Therese' from a senior nun was, " ...Remember, Sister, for your whole life; as waters flow from the mountains own into the valleys, so too, do God's graces flow into humble souls."

Great counter-culture guidance for our times.

God bless you.

Thanks for the many readers who made this one to remember. I think I'll re-post it.
