St. Ignatius of Antioch

I write and command all the churches that I willingly die for God, if in fact you do not prevent me.  I appeal to you to not to be inopportune even with a noble purpose.  Permit me to be food for the beasts; through them I will reach God.  I am the wheat of God, and I compete through the beasts' teeth to be found the pure bread of Christ.
