Anthony the Great of Thebes
St. Anthony is called
the Patriarch of Monks. He was born at Aama, village south of
Memphis, near Thebes. His parents were rich Christians. Shortly after
inheriting his parents' fortune, he sold all his vast fortune and
gave the proceeds to the poor, sent his sister to a nunnery and
retired to an old ruin of a tomb. He ate only every three or four
days and spent his time at manual labor and prayer.
