“The Torment of Saint Anthony [of the Desert]”

Late 15th century (c. 1487-88) by Michelangelo 

Painted when the artist was 12 or 13 years old, The Torment of Saint Anthony depicts St. Anthony of the Desert’s (or St. Anthony the Great’s) struggle with the the devil and the demons during his time in isolation in the desert. The demons would at times assault him physically, as well as through strong temptations. But the painting also depicts another truth. The demons assault of St. Anthony was to prevent his advancement in holiness. In the painting you see St. Anthony flying, achieving great height despite the great number of demons trying to drag him back down.  Anthony resisted them through constant prayer, fasting and reflecting on the scripture.  It was impossible for the devils to stop his ascent to holiness with such a powerful spiritual regimen.   It’s true for us, too in this spiritual life. Through constant prayer, self denial, and reading and reflecting on God’s word in the Bible, the forces of evil that try to hold us back from holiness are unable to achieve their mission.
