    The Church of St Paul and St Anthony

    May 6 in Egypt ⋅ ⛅ 37 °C

    This is the smallest of the 3 churches at the monastery. Saints Paul and Anthony are two of the original desert fathers. It is said that a bird would bring a half loaf of bread to Saint Paul each day. When Anthony reached Paul, the bird brought a whole loaf every day they were together. So this church has 2 altars to commemorate this double feeding of the saints.
    The 1st 3 pictures look around the small (this one really is small) church. The 4th is of the Saint Paul altar while the last is the Saint Anthony altar.
