Earthly pleasures and Christ

"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. Do not talk about Jesus Christ as long
as you love this world."


- St Ignatius of Antioch (+ a.d. 108)
