The LifeHQ woman is the epitome of her highest self. She nurtures herself. She feeds her mind with positivity DAILY. She feeds her soul DAILY. She looks after her body. She knows she wants to look good & does that too. She does this with simplicity. With luxury. For she is the confident woman with attitude and carries herself with grace.
Feast of the "Father of Monks" today, St. Antony the Great of Egypt... Patron of Monastic and Religious life who abandoned a life of wealth and privilege to dwell in the deserts of Egypt and seek God alone in prayer, fasting and meditation. While he was not the first to do this he became the most well known and all Christian Monasticism traces its origins to his influence. While in Assisi I was privileged to venerate a first class relic of him held in Santa Maria degli Angeli. He is the patron of Monks and Nuns, and is invoked against temptation, for the relief of sickness in animals and as a powerful patron for exorcists. Prayer from the Mass today: Collect O God, who brought the Abbot Saint Anthony to serve you by a wondrous way of life in the desert, grant, through his intercession, that, denying ourselves, we may always love you above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. . . #monastic#monk#nun#desertfathers#holy#saintantony#grace#joy#catholic#orthodox#christian#prayer#meditation#hermit#mindfulness#contemplation#capuchin#holy#holistic
