"Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

Dearly Beloved --

Welcome to St. Anthony Church web site. May the Lord bless your life and reward all those who worked for this site with the heavenly rewards.St. Anthony the Great

The Church is the place of comfort and joy. How lovely is your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord. (Psalm 84:1-2).

It is the place of meeting with God, where His love embraces everyone. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young- even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King my God. Blessed are those who dwell in and your house; they will still be praising You. (Psalm 84:3-4).

It is the place where the Lord hears our supplications and grants us forgiveness. And may You hear the supplication of Your servant and of Your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear in heaven Your dwelling place; and when You hear, forgive.
(1 Kings 8:30).

No doubt the secret behind the glory of the house of God lies in the guidance of the Holy Spirit as St. Augustine said, “The Spirit of the Church Who overflows with every gift upon her members.” St. Iranaeus said, “Where the Church is there is the Spirit of God and where the Spirit of God is there exists the Church and every grace.”

The Church is also the Body of Christ. And He put all things under His feet , and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. (Ephesians 1:22-23).

It is the assembly of Holy members that are one in Christ. So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. (Romans 12:5).

May our Lord Jesus Christ keep the gates of the church open to the faithful through the intercessions of St. Mary, the prayers of St. Anthony the Great and all the Saints.
