Today is the Memorial of St. Anthony of Egypt, honored as the “Father of Monasticism.” Jeff Ziegler gives us these links:

St. Anthony (251-356), abbot, Patriarch
of Monks.
– The classic Life of St. Anthony by St. Athanasius.
Today’s readings at Mass: 1 Sm. 4:1-11; Ps. 44:10-11, 14-15, 24-
25; Mk. 1:40-45.
– Hieronymus Bosch, Triptych of the Temptation of St. Anthony (1505-6).

Last year I posted many Anthony links myself, along with my own reflections on his life (and my own). My KVSS interview is up on my audio page, way down toward the bottom.
