Who is St. Anthony of the Desert? The inspiration for our own St. Anthony of Padua when picking a new name? A wealthy young man who gave away an entire fortune after hearing the Gospel at Mass? A prayerful hermit who scoffed in the face of vicious demon attacks?

Join Michael Gormley as we continue our pilgrimage to the Our Lady of the Angels Chapel with Saint Anthony of the Desert.Support Beyond the Bulletin
