St. Anthony the Great,
St Anthony the Great
“The truly intelligent pursue one sole objective:
If we make every effort to Obey and to Conform to our God of all.
to avoid death of the body, With this single aim in view,
still more should it be our endeavour we Discipline our soul,
to avoid Death of the soul. and whatever we may encounter in the course of life,
we give Thanks to God
There is no obstacle for those
for the Compass and Depth of His Providential Ordering
who want to be Saved
of all things.
other than negligence and laziness of soul.
For it is absurd to be grateful to Doctors
who give us bitter and unpleasant medicines
to cure our body,
and yet to be ungrateful to God
for what appears to us to be harsh -
not grasping that all we encounter
is for our Benefit
and in accordance with His Divine Providence.
For Knowledge of God
and Faith in Him
is the Salvation and Perfection of our soul.”
