QotD – Come Fire and Cross – 2.19.2016

At last I am well on the way to being a disciple.  May nothing seen or unseen, fascinate me, so that I may happily make my way to Jesus Christ!  Fire, cross, struggles with wild beasts, wrenching bones, mangling of limbs, crunching of the whole body, cruel tortures inflicted by the devil – let them come upon me, provided only I make my way to Jesus Christ. (Ignatius of Antioch. Letter to the Romans. ~110 AD. 5)
