Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr

Ignatius of Antioch

The Martyrdom of Ignatius of Antioch, from the Menologion of Basil II (c. 1000). From Wikipedia.

Renew in thy Church, we beseech thee, O Lord, the courage of Ignatius the Martyr, the fervour of his letters, and the faithfulness of his teaching: That men may so burn with love towards thee, as to care for naught else but to do thy will, whatever be the cost in life, in suffering, or in death itself; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

We beseech thee, O Lord, to grant us, after the example of blessed Ignatius, thy Bishop and Martyr, constancy in thy faith and truth; that we may be grounded in divine love and moved from its perfection by no temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
