St. Anthony was one of the first ascetics to have settled in the desert. Once, having doubts about how he should live in order to be saved, he asked God in prayer: “Lord, what am I to do? How am I to spend my days; how should I live?”
I pray to God that you all might find this path and meet the love of your life on it, and that you might walk hand-in-hand with them, and not that one be pulled here, and another there, but that you were both pulled to the East, that is, to Christ! I always pray to God, that you would experience the very greatest miracle—the feeling of God’s presence and love in our hearts and lives!
