      {Some brothers came to find Abba Anthony to tell him about the visions they
      were having, and to find out from him if they were true or if they came from
      the demons. They had a donkey which died on the way. When they reached the
      place where the old man was, he said to them before they could ask him
      anything, "How was it that the little donkey died on the way here?" They
      said, "How do you know about that, Abba?" And he told them, "The demons
      showed me what happened." So they said, "That was what we came to question
      you about, for fear we were being deceived, for we have visions which often
      turn out to be true." Thus the old man convinced them, by the example of the
      donkey, that their visions came from the demons.}


      Saint Anthony the Great, called 'The Father of Monks' was born in central
      Egypt about A.D. 251, the son of peasant farmers who were Christian. In c.
      269 he heard the Gospel read in Church and applied to himself the wards: 'Go,
      sell all that you have and give to the poor and come....' He devoted himself
      to a life of asceticism under the guidance of a recluse near his village. In
      c. 285 he went alone into the desert to live in complete solitude. His
      reputation attracted followers, who settled near him, and in c. 305 he came
      out of his hermitage in order to act as their spiritual father. Five years
      alter he gain retired into solitude. he visited Alexandria at least twice,
      once during the persecution of Christians and again to support the Bishop
      Athanasius against heresy. He died at the age of one hundred and five. His
      life was written by Saint Athanasius and was very influential in spreading
      the ideas of monasticism throughout the Christian World.

      The Bible reading for the 11th of Hatour, November 20th, is:
      1 Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those
      things which have been fulfilled among us, 2 just as those who from the
      beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered them to us, 3
      it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things
      from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent
      Theophilus, 4 that you may know the certainty of those things in which you
      were instructed.

      5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named
      Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron,
      and her name was Elizabeth. 6 And they were both righteous before God,
      walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. 7 But
      they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well
      advanced in years. 8 So it was, that while he was serving as priest before
      God in the order of his division, 9 according to the custom of the
      priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the temple of the
      Lord. 10 And the whole multitude of the people was praying outside at the
      hour of incense. 11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on
      the right side of the altar of incense. 12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was
      troubled, and fear fell upon him. 13 But the angel said to him, "Do not be
      afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will
      bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. 14 And you will have joy
      and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. 15 For he will be great in
      the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will
      also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. 16 And he
      will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 He will
      also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, 'to turn the hearts of
      the fathers to the children,' and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just,
      to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." 18 And Zacharias said to the
      angel, "How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well
      advanced in years." 19 And the angel answered and said to him, "I am Gabriel,
      who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you
      these glad tidings. 20 But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak
      until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words
      which will be fulfilled in their own time." 21 And the people waited for
      Zacharias, and marveled that he lingered so long in the temple. 22 But when
      he came out, he could not speak to them; and they perceived that he had seen
      a vision in the temple, for he beckoned to them and remained speechless. 23
      And so it was, as soon as the days of his service were completed, that he
      departed to his own house. 24 Now after those days his wife Elizabeth
      conceived; and she hid herself five months, saying, 25 "Thus the Lord has
      dealt with me, in the days when He looked on me, to take away my reproach
      among people." (Luke 1:1-25)
      Departure of St. Anna, the Mother of Virgin Mary.

      The Bible reading for the 12th of Hatour, November 21st, is: Matt. 13:24-43
      Commemoration of Archangel Michael.
