St. Anthony is the Patriarch or Abbott "spiritual father" of Monks. His "rule" for shared Divine Service through the chanting of the 150 Psalms centered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (The breaking of the bread) portrayed in the Acts of the Apostles is the origin of Eastern Greek Catholic Monasticism along with the Rule of St. Basil the Great.

Benedictine Monasteries became the bed rock cultural and value institutions of Christendom.
