Quote/s of the Day – 17 October – The Memorial of St Ignatius of Antioch (c 35 – 107) Father of the Church, Martyr
“Wherever Jesus Christ is,
there is the Catholic Church.”
(Letter to the Smyrnaeans, Ch 8)
“Do not have Jesus Christ on your lips
and the world in your heart.”
“Therefore run together
as into one temple of God,
as to one altar,
as to one Jesus Christ,
who came forth from one Father
and is with
and has gone to One.”
“I am the wheat of God,
and am ground by the teeth of the wild beasts,
that I may be found the pure bread of God.
I long after the Lord,
the Son of the true God and Father, Jesus Christ.
Him I seek, who died for us and rose again.
I am eager to die for the sake of Christ.
My love has been crucified,
and there is no fire in me that loves anything.
But there is living water springing up in me,
and it says to me inwardly:
“Come to the Father.”
