Desert Father Fridays – St. Anthony of the Desert

The faith of the Christians in the early Church is always an encouragement for me.  So I thought I would begin to share some thoughts from the Desert Fathers every Friday.  For those Catholics who make sacrifices, especially on Fridays, it’s always good to look at our fathers in faith for inspiration and encouragement. Lately I have felt some external discouragement in my faith.  This quote really speaks to me about the world we are living in:

“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him saying, ‘You are mad, you are not like us.'”
– St. Anthony of the Desert Taken from the Sayings of the Desert Fathers.
