St. Anthony of Egypt

About St. Anthony of Egypt

St. Anthony of Egypt lived during the third century in Egypt.  When his parents died, he inherited all their land and money.  At the time he was about 18 years old.  He was also left to care for his younger sister.

One day, while attending Church services he felt inspired by the gospel of Matthew 19:2, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

St. Anthony Abbot took Matthew’s words to heart, left the church and gave all his belongings to the poor, leaving enough for his sister to live on.

 St. Anthony of Egypt Patron Saint

St. Anthony continues to contemplate the gospel of Matthew, 6:34, “So do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.  Today’s trouble is enough for today.”  After contemplation and prayer, St. Anthony of Egypt left his sister at a convent and traveled to the desert where he lived a life of fasting, prayer, and contemplation for the rest of his days.  He died at the age of 105.

Saint Anthony of Egypt Inspiration

St. Anthony of Egypt accepted all the sacrifices and torments he suffered in the desert with true faith in Jesus Christ.  He lived the words of Jesus in a way that most Christians never will.  Christians today pray to Saint Anthony of Egypt to strengthen their own faith in Jesus and help them to live with the faith to accept the sacrifices and challenges that come their way.

Wearing a St. Anthony of Egypt necklace or a St. Anthony of Egypt pendant during the day is a reminder to keep the faith even on the most challenging days.  Reciting a St. Anthony of Egypt prayer also inspires Christians live their lives the way Jesus Christ would and gladly go through life with fervor and faith.

St. Anthony of Egypt Prayers

Collect of the Day: Antony, Abbot in Egypt, d. 356

O God, who by your Holy Spirit enabled your servant Antony to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil: Give us grace, with pure hearts and minds, to follow you, the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Troparion - Tone 4

You imitated the ways of zealous Elijah,
and followed the straight path of John the Baptist.
You became a desert dweller
and strengthened the world by your prayers.
Father Anthony, intercede with Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion - Tone 2

You rejected the tumult of this life
and lived your life to the end in solitude,
imitating the Baptist in every way.
With him we honor you, most venerable Anthony, foundation of the Fathers.
