Saint Ignatius of Antioch

Almighty, ever-living God, the sufferings of the martyrs adorn the Church, which is the Body of Christ. As we celebrate the martyrdom of Saint Ignatius of Antioch, grant that it may be for us a constant source of strength, as it was for him the entry into glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
