“No earthly pleasures, no kingdoms of this world can benefit me in any way. I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire.” (St. Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr)
October 17 is the Memorial of St. Ignatius, Bishop and Martyr ( – 107).
