A message from Father Robert that will also be in next weeks bulletin Thank you all who helped in making this so beautiful!! Happy Easter to all!! Do you have little ones? What a great family activity!! I pray this note finds you all well. At the end of our Mass this morning, Fr. Robert asked that we all keep in touch, send emails and texts, reach out to our parish community virtually so that none of us feel alone as we shelter in place.
My hope is that the song medley that accompanies my words today brings you that joy, and comes full circle to give back that joy to Don Pearson, all the members of the St.
Ignatius Choir, and also to Fr. Robert and Fr. Mangini who would usually lead us with their voice in song each weekend.
If we can be together and cooperate in this fight against the coronavirus, maybe we can realize how it can be in a world that takes care of all our human race; the homeless, our Veterans, the sick and dying, the elderly, and children going hungry, the poor of our southern nations or the horrific conditions of Ethiopia. We are so blessed, yet we know that any one of us could have contracted the virus or even been born into much worse circumstances. Please share! Stay safe and healthy!!

He who rose for our sakes is my one desire. Induring the reign of the brutal Emperor Trajan, this holy Bishop was wrongfully sentenced to death because he refused to renounce the Christian faith.
He was taken under guard to Rome where he was to be brutally devoured by wild beasts in a public spectacle. A holy man who was deeply loved by the Christian faithful, he always made it his special care to defend "orthodoxy" right teaching and "orthopraxy" right practice among the early Christians. During his journey, his travels took him through Asia Minor and Greece. He made good use of the time by writing seven letters of encouragement, instruction and inspiration to the Christians in those communities.PDF coloring page of St.

Several of his letters have survived to this day; he is one of the Apostolic Fathers the earliest group of the Church Fathersand a saint in the Orthodox Church feastday, December He was arrested by the Roman authorities and transported to Rome to die in the arena. They hoped to make an example of him and thus discourage Christianity from spreading.
Instead, he met with and encouraged Christians all along his route, and wrote letters to the Ephesians, Magnesians, Trallians, Philadelphians, Smyrneans, and Romans, as well as a letter to Polycarpwho was bishop of Smyrna and a disciple of John the Evangelist. These letters proved to be influential in the development of Christian theologysince the number of extant writings from this period of Church history is very small.
They bear signs of being written in great haste and without a proper plan, such as run-on sentences and an unsystematic succesion of thought. Ignatius is the first known Christian writer to put great stress on loyality to a single bishop in each city, who is assisted by both presbyters priests and deacons. Earlier writings only mention either bishops or presbyters, and give the impression that there was usually more than one bishop per congregation.
Ignatius also stresses the value of the Eucharistcalling it "a medicine to immortality. So, for him, to try to escape his martyrdom would be to fear death and place himself back under its power. Nowadays only shorter variants of those seven letters are thought to be authentic writings of Ignatius. Their longer variants are thought to be emendations from the fifth century, created to postumously enlist Ignatius as an unwitting witness into certain theological fights of that age, while the other letters bearing his name and the purported eye-witness account of his martyrdom, are thought to be pure forgeries from around the same time.

Also called Theophorus ho Theophoros ; born in Syriaaround the year 50; died at Rome between 98 and More than one of the earliest ecclesiastical writers have given credence, though apparently without good reason, to the legend that Ignatius was the child whom the Savior took up in His arms, as described in Mark It is also believed, and with great probability, that, with his friend Polycarphe was among the auditors of the Apostle St.

If we include St. Theodoret "Dial. Peter appointed Ignatius to the See of Antioch. John Chrysostom lays special emphasis on the honor conferred upon the martyr in receiving his episcopal consecration at the hands of the Apostles themselves "Hom.
All the sterling qualities of ideal pastor and a true soldier of Christ were possessed by the Bishop of Antioch in a preeminent degree. Accordingly, when the storm of the persecution of Domitian broke in its full fury upon the Christians of Syriait found their faithful leader prepared and watchful.
He was unremitting in his vigilance and tireless in his efforts to inspire hope and to strengthen the weaklings of his flock against the terrors of the persecution. The restoration of peace, though it was short-lived, greatly comforted him. But it was not for himself that he rejoiced, as the one great and ever-present wish of his chivalrous soul was that he might receive the fullness of Christian discipleship through the medium of martyrdom.
His desire was not to remain long unsatisfied. Associated with the writings of St. Ignatius is a work called "Martyrium Ignatii", which purports to be an account by eyewitnesses of the martyrdom of St.
Ignatius and the acts leading up to it. In this work, which such competent Protestant critics as Pearson and Ussher regard as genuine, the full history of that eventful journey from Syria to Rome is faithfully recorded for the edification of the Church of Antioch. It is certainly very ancient and is reputed to have been written by Philodeacon of Tarsusand Rheus Agathopus, a Syrianwho accompanied Ignatius to Rome.
It is generally admitted, even by those who regarded it as authentic, that this work has been greatly interpolated. Its most reliable form is that found in the "Martyrium Colbertinum" which closes the mixed recension and is so called because its oldest witness is the tenth-century Codex Colbertinus Paris.
According to these Acts, in the ninth year of his reign, Trajanflushed with victory over the Scythians and Dacians, sought to perfect the universality of his dominion by a species of religious conquest.
He decreed, therefore, that the Christians should unite with their pagan neighbors in the worship of the gods. A general persecution was threatened, and death was named as the penalty for all who refused to offer the prescribed sacrifice.
Instantly alert to the danger that threatened, Ignatius availed himself of all the means within his reach to thwart the purpose of the emperor.
The success of his zealous efforts did not long remain hidden from the Church's persecutors. He was soon arrested and led before Trajanwho was then sojourning in Antioch. Accused by the emperor himself of violating the imperial edict, and of inciting others to like transgressions, Ignatius valiantly bore witness to the faith of Christ.
If we may believe the account given in the "Martyrium", his bearing before Trajan was characterized by inspired eloquence, sublime courageand even a spirit of exultation.
Incapable of appreciating the motives that animated him, the emperor ordered him to be put in chains and taken to Romethere to become the food of wild beasts and a spectacle for the people. That the trials of this journey to Rome were great we gather from his letter to the Romans par.
News of his fate, his destination, and his probable itinerary had gone swiftly before. At several places along the road his fellow-Christians greeted him with words of comfort and reverential homage. It is probable that he embarked on his way to Rome at Seleuciain Syriathe nearest port to Antiochfor either Tarsus in Cilicia, or Attalia in Pamphylia, and thence, as we gather from his letters, he journeyed overland through Asia Minor.
At Laodicea, on the River Lycus, where a choice of routes presented itself, his guards selected the more northerly, which brought the prospective martyr through Philadelphia and Sardis, and finally to Smyrnawhere Polycarphis fellow-disciple in the school of St. John, was bishop. The stay at Smyrnawhich was a protracted one, gave the representatives of the various Christian communities in Asia Minor an opportunity of greeting the illustrious prisonerand offering him the homage of the Churches they represented.
From the congregations of Ephesus, Magnesiaand Tralles, deputations came to comfort him. To each of these Christian communities he addressed letters from Smyrnaexhorting them to obedience to their respective bishopsand warning them to avoid the contamination of heresy.Ignatius of Antioch Catholic Communityestablished in the Nashville, Tennessee diocese inenjoys a diverse membership of over seven hundred families.

Welcome to St. Ignatius Catholic Church
While en route to Romewhere he met his martyrdomIgnatius wrote a series of letters. This correspondence now forms a central part of a later collection of works known to be authored by the Apostolic Fathers. He is considered to be one of the three most important of these, together with Pope Clement I and Polycarp.
His letters also serve as an example of early Christian theology. Important topics they address include ecclesiologythe sacramentsand the role of bishops. Nothing is known of Ignatius' life apart from what may be inferred internally from his letters, except from later sometimes spurious traditions.
It is said Ignatius converted to Christianity  at a young age. Tradition identifies Ignatius, along with his friend Polycarpas disciples of John the Apostle. Peter himself left directions that Ignatius be appointed to the episcopal see of Antioch. A tradition arose that he was one of the children whom Jesus Christ took in his arms and blessed,  although if he was born around 50 AD, as supposed, then Christ had ascended approximately 20 years prior.
Ignatius' feast day was kept in his own Antioch on 17 October, the day on which he is now celebrated in the Catholic Church and generally in western Christianityalthough from the 12th century until it was put at 1 February in the General Roman Calendar.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church it is observed on 20 December. Instead of being executed in his home town of Antioch, Ignatius was escorted to Rome by a company of ten Roman soldiers:. From Syria even unto Rome I fight with beasts, both by land and sea, both by night and day, being bound to ten leopards, I mean a band of soldiers Scholars consider Ignatius' transport to Rome unusual, since those persecuted as Christians would be expected to be punished locally.
Stevan Davies has pointed out that "no other examples exist from the Flavian age of any prisoners except citizens or prisoners of war being brought to Rome for execution. If Ignatius were a Roman citizenhe could have appealed to the emperor, but then he would usually have been beheaded rather than tortured. Allen Brent argues that Ignatius was transferred to Rome at the request of the emperor in order to provide entertainment to the masses by being killed in the Colosseum.
Brent insists, contrary to some, that "it was normal practice to transport condemned criminals from the provinces in order to offer spectator sport in the Colosseum at Rome. Stevan Davies rejects the idea that Ignatius was transported to Rome for the games at the Colosseum. He reasons that "if Ignatius was in some way a donation by the Imperial Governor of Syria to the games at Rome, a single prisoner seems a rather miserly gift.
Under Roman law, only the governor of a province or the emperor himself could impose capital punishmentso the legate would have faced the choice of imprisoning Ignatius in Antioch or sending him to Rome. Davies postulates that the legate may have decided to send Ignatius to Rome so as to minimize any further dissension among the Antiochene Christians. Christine Trevett has called Davies' suggestion "entirely hypothetical" and concludes that no fully satisfactory solution to the problem can be found, writing, "I tend to take the bishop at his word when he says he is a condemned man.
But the question remains, why is he going to Rome? The truth is that we do not know. During the journey to Rome, Ignatius and his entourage of soldiers made a number of lengthy stops in Asia Minordeviating from the most direct land route from Antioch to Rome. During the journey, the soldiers seem to have allowed Ignatius to meet with entire congregations of Christians while in chains, at least while he was in Philadelphia cf. These messengers allowed Ignatius to send six letters to nearby churches, and one to Polycarpthe bishop of Smyrna.
These aspects of Ignatius' martyrdom are also regarded by scholars as unusual. It is generally expected that a prisoner would be transported on the most direct, cost-effective route to their destination. Since travel by land in the Roman Empire was between five and fifty-two times more expensive than travel by sea,  and Antioch was a major port city, the most efficient route would likely have been entirely by sea.
Steven Davies argues that Ignatius' circuitous route to Rome can only be explained by positing that he was not the main purpose of the soldiers' trip, and that the various stops in Asia Minor were for other state business. He suggests that such a scenario would also explain the relative freedom that Ignatius was given to meet with other Christians during the journey.
