It was San Antonio Abad a humble young man who lived with his parents and who, very young, became interested in the church and the teachings of God.
He paid close attention to the readings and kept in his heart the idea of purifying his soul and following in the footsteps of Jesus.
Antonio was formed a man with great rectitude. Since he decided to be a hermit and purify his spirit, many temptations were presented to him, which he was able to overcome with great courage and faith, always looking towards the service of God.
