Taking The Hill With St. Ignatius of Antioch


What a POWERFUL witness & Evangelist!

image of St. Ignatius of Antioch being eaten by the lions in Rome. 107 ADSt. Ignatius of Antioch was eaten by the lions in the Roman Coliseum in December of about 107 AD.  He stood before the Emperor and boldly witnessed to him.   He was a legend in the early Church, revered by all, a disciple of the Apostle John, and he left us an incredible insight into the first century Christian Church… which he called “Catholic!” 

This was the second talk I gave at the Amarillo Catholic Men’s Conference in October of 2013. The first talk I gave recounted how God saved me from a lifetime of pornography addiction through the Catholic Church.  In this talk we look to the heroic example of St. Ignatius of Antioch, the first century Bishop who “took the hill” for Christ and His Church!
