"My most recent analysis ... reveals a striking trend: A generation of conservative young priests is on the rise in the U.S. Church." - Fr. Andrew Greeley, in the article, "Young Fogeys", from The Atlantic Magazine. January, 2004.

Jan. 17 - St. Antony of the Desert
Today's feast day fools some people, who see "St. Anthony" in the Mass listing in their parish's bulletin and presume this is feast day of the Franciscan from Padua. Not so.
This Anthony (or Antony) is from the 3rd century and considered the founder of monasticism (not too shabby). His life story was written by Saint Athanasius, and is available in bookstores or by ordering online.
