Saint Athanasius - F.A. Forbes

This is the story of the great "Father of Orthodoxy" who was the man chosen by God to uphold the True Faith in a time of crisis and to pass on to us the Catholic teaching that Christ is truly God.

"Athanasius!" called out the holy old Bishop from his deathbed. There was no reply. For the Bishop's young assistant had fled the city in fear of being chosen as his successor.
"Athanasius!" called out the Patriarch once more. "You think you can escape, but it shall not be so." And with these words he died.
Not long afterward, the Bishops met to choose a successor for the see of Alexandria. The Catholics of the city gathered outside, crying out, "Give us Athanasius! Give us Athanasius!" The Bishops knew of no one better fitted for the office.

Thus began the long and exciting episcopate of St. Athanasius, Bishop and Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt. A counsellor to his bishop at the Council of Nicea in 325, his own tenure would include conflicts with the Roman Emperors, strange and false accusation from the Arian heretics, being exiled from his diocese no less than five separate times, hairsbreadth escapes from his enemies and secret visits to his faithful people - plus, the writing of the life of St. Antony of the Desert, his good friend and the Father of Monasticism both East and West.
