HAPPY SAINT ANTONIUS DAY TO ME!












I DARE REMIND THAT MY NAME IS NOT ANTONABADZHIEV BUT ANTON. JAN 17 IS MY NAMEDAY.
To those who are not aware of saintology - Saint Antonius used to be the greatest junkie and an alcoholic. Then he became the first A.A. That was the base of Anonymous Alcoholics and the name Anton Abadzhiev. Obviously it didn't work much (It was just the 3rd century!). So Antonius went to the hottest desert for a complete "cold turkey" procedure and became the very first hermit. As hermitage hadn't had any experience at the time he did not put himself in a cell and pray, but just the opposite. He stood long hot days (50C) and long cold nights (-50C) to fight the deuce. That should have been something! Look at Salvador Dali's "Temtation of Saint Antonius".
In the Orthodox Lives of The Saints we read:... Saint Antonius days and nights long challenged and fought MADNESS and GOT SEVERELY ANGRY WHEN HE COULDN'T WIN!
In Greek verse the name means "increasing straights".

There are some visuals presented what it looks and looked like.
Send me greetings and have one large for me!

P.S. The French "San Antonio" books are inspired by these great events. There are just 9 translations in English and about 29 in Bulgarian. In all languages it is unreadable.
