      I no longer take pleasure in perishable food or in the delights of this world I want only God's bread, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, formed from the seed of David, and for drink I crave his blood, which is love that cannot perish. -- Saint Ignatius of Antioch

    St. Ignatius of Antioch

    Saint Antipas of Pergamon. Spiritual student of Saint John the Apostle. Bishop of Pergamum. Martyred by being burned alive in a bronze bull.

    The spiritual power emanating from the Apostle Peter was so strong that even his shadow moved to those lying on the street sick and healed them. This message was written shortly before the martyrdom of the Apostle Peter: "I know that soon I must leave off this my tabernacle (body), as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me." At the end of his life, the Apostle Peter went back to Rome where he was martyred in '67 by crucifixion upside down.
