luminary: ‘a person who inspires or influences others, especially one prominent in a particular sphere’
That’s the best description I can think of for the man whose departure from this world we celebrate today (January 30) – a man known universally simply as Anthony the Great (gotta love that name!).
Before his departure in the 4th century, St. Anthony left us with a wealth of spiritual wisdom in the form of several letters he wrote. Since today is his feast day, I wanted to post my seven favorite sayings of his and hopefully you’ll appreciate them as much as I do.
Happy feast day St. Anthony. Remember us, your children, and pray for us always.
