Saint Anthony, Abbot: "beset by weakness"

he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears
-- Heb 5:1-10

"The Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes with sighs too deep for words." The Holy Spirit, the artisan of God's works, is the master of prayer. (This will be the topic of Part Four.)
-- CCC 741

Art: Agostino Caracci, The Temptation of Saint Anthony, Abbot.
