Anthony, St, Surnamed Cauleas
Anthony, St., Surnamed Cauleas, the second patriarch of Constantinople of the name, was born about 828, near Constantinople. At twelve years of age he retired into a monastery, of which he afterwards became abbot, and where he did vast good by his wisdom, excellent government, and rare example. In 894 he was raised to the patriarchal throne, to succeed St. Stephen.. When in this elevated position he relaxed nothing from his former perfect life: he spent his days in penitence and prayer, in visiting and comforting the poor and sick, and in other deeds befitting a Christian bishop. After governing his Church two years, he died, Feb. 12, 896, the day on which he is commemorated. See Oriens Christ. 1, 250; Baillet, Feb. 12.
