St. Athanasius - Life of St. Anthony, pt. 4

Catholic Culture Audiobooks

“I am a servant of Christ. If you have been sent against me, here I am.”

With today’s episode, we pass the halfway mark of this Christian classic. We’ll hear of Anthony’s move even further into the desert, more stories of his struggles against principalities and powers, and more of Anthony's words to the monks who came to him seeking guidance.

In part 3, we heard Anthony describe some beginning rules for the discernment of spirits. This time, we’ll hear him provide instruction on another hallmark of Christian spirituality: the examination of conscience at the end of the day.There’s also to be found here a number of instances testifying to the power of prayer, of what can happen when one prays and believes sincerely, and a reminder of Our Lord’s words, “Ask, and it shall be given to you.”
