From the Menaion - 17 January


On 17 January, we commemorate our venerable father Anthony the Great.

Did Heaven hold anyone more illustrious than Anthony at the moment when it welcomed that first and greatest monk? On the seventeenth, he received Heaven as his patrimony.

By his holy prayers, O our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
