On this feast day of St. Ignatius of Antioch,
we honor the memory of this holy martyr and bishop.
We thank You for the inspiration and guidance
he provides to Your Church through his unwavering
faith and devotion.
Grant us the wisdom to understand and embrace his teachings,
so that we may grow in holiness and unity within Your Church.
Help us to live lives that reflect the love and unity
for which St. Ignatius fervently prayed.
Holy Martyr and Bishop
