Anthony, St, of Lerins

Anthony, St., Of Lerins (also called Antonius Cyrus), was the son of a man of rank in Pannonia, named Secumdinus. After the death of his father, Anthony retired into different solitudes, where he lived a strictly ascetic life, until at last, to avoid the persons who flocked to him on account of his reputation for sanctity, he retired into the monastery of Lerins, where he died at the end of two years, about 526, aged about forty-eight years. His name occurs in the modern Roman martyrology, December 28. His Life, by St. Ennodius of Pavia, is in Surius. See Baillet December 28.
