SaintCast #86, St. Anthony of the Desert, Patron Saints Index, iphone ad spoof, grade school hoops, feedback +1.312.235.2278

Today we learn about the Saint who has been called the founder of Christian monasticism, Anthony of the Desert. What prompted him to live a solitary life of virtue, as a hermit in the harsh Egyptian desert? Paul and Chris post an iPhone commercial parody that you can see by clicking the above video link. Terry Jones of the Patron Saints Index joins us for a look at the week's saints. A saint's car recently sold in Italy - find out who in this week's St. Jeopardy quiz. And next week, we interview Fr. Jim Martin of My Life with the Saints, on his new book, A Jesuit Off Broadway.
