Senior writer Lara Pickford-Gordon answers the question in Part 2 of her interview with Fr Anthony. CLICK HERE for Part 1
Fr Anthony de Verteuil CSSp was born May 7, 1932 to Eric and Marie Antoinette de Verteuil. He has a twin brother named after his father, while he was named after his mother. He had two older sisters and two brothers. The twins arrived 15 years after their last sibling was born.
Fr Anthony was born ten minutes after Eric. “I suppose that is where I got this liking to be challenged because my twin brother was always better than me,” he said matter-of-factly in an interview on March 9.
