Wealthy Asia-born Saint Anthony (9th cent) lived in Constantinople from his youth. After the death of his mother, he entered a monastery at age 12. He prayed all night and kept strict fast. Against his wish, he became presbyter and hegumen. He was very merciful and loved the poor, to which he gave generously, even more when he became Patriarch of Constantinople. Though infirm, he went through all churches to serve his bretheren like Christ did. He died in old age and is remembered Feb 12.
