St Anthony

Born in Upper Eygpt in 251, Anthony lived from 286-306 in complete solitude in a deserted fort. He left his fort to guide his disciples who had gathered around him and from his monastry went to Alexandria to enourage the confessors during the persecution of Maximinus. He is regarded as patriach of monks and healer of both men and animals. Anthony died in 356.

Thought for the Week

We have now left the Season of Christmas-tide and Green Time is upon us. We call it Ordinary Time. This does not mean boring or even plain. It refers to ordinal numbers. Cardinal numbers are one, two, three. Ordinal numbers are first, second, third, etc. Ordinary Time is counted time. We need Green Time in two blocks through the Year to allow us space to reflect upon the mysteries of faith and to allow us to ponder over our own daily living out of the Faith.
