Quote of the Week - Saint Ignatius of Antioch

“No earthly pleasures, no kingdoms of this world can benefit me in any way. I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire.” – Saint Ignatius of Antioch

Saint Ignatius of Antioch is correct in asserting that nothing on this earth can equal the Kingdom of Heaven for empowering Christians.
