Feast of St. Anthony the Abbot and Saint



St. Anthony the Abbott


I wrote about this dear mid-winter saint  on Catholicmom.com.

St. Anthony didn’t become a great saint by doing big important things. He didn’t write a tome, or influence a council. He wasn’t known for his robust preaching or supernatural healings. His holiness came from seeking to be simple.
That’s why his feast day seems to be so perfectly situated right here at the start of ordinary time. But what can a modern Catholic mom learn from an ancient celibate monk?
Lots! Everyone has their own crosses to carry. In family life, there are all of the crosses that come with having a spouse and raising a family. But celibacy and the monastic life has its own set of sacrifices. What we learn from St. Anthony is one way of working towards holiness in our lives – seeking quiet time and simplicity.
