The feast of Ignatius is celebrated on October 17th. Ignatius was a lesser-known saint of the second or third generation of Christians in Antioch, until he became the third bishop in that city. We know him as a joy-filled martyr in Rome and from a number of his letters written to the churches along his route from Antioch to Rome. We still have these letters today. They reveal a man so passionately devoted to Jesus Christ that his greatest desire was to be martyred for his Lord.
