St. Ignatius of Antioch, B. M.

Philippians 3:17-4:1, Cant Benedictus,
John 12:24-26

Falling to the ground

The saintly life is one which dies to itself countless times, such is the depth of holiness. The reward of this life is not success in worldly terms but a ‘hating’ of success, a turning away from seeking success. God honours this ‘hating’ because the world cannot. Can I live without seeking the feelings associated with success? I can if I die to my egocentric seeking. My life will be fruitful. That brings peace and integrity.
