January 15 - St. Paul of Thebes

Many people say St. Anthony the Abbot was the first of the Desert Fathers. He wasn't. That distinction belongs to St. Paul of Thebes, who is featured in St. Who? 39 Holy Unknowns. He was a rich youth who fled the world and Roman persecution and found the perfect place to live in the desert. He lived to 100 years old. Today is his memorial. Happy Feast Day!
