Prayer of Saint Ignatius of Antioch


Prayer for Martyrdom of Saint of Ignatius of Antioch

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.
Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr
