St Ignatius of Antioch


Ignatius of Antioch, surnamed Theophorus, which in Greek means “God-Bearer,” was probably a convert and disciple of St. John the Evangelist. We know nothing of his early life. The fourth-century Church historian, Eusebius, says that the Apostles Peter and Paul, who planted the faith in Antioch, left directions that Ignatius should succeed Evodius as bishop of that city; he states further that Ignatius retained the office for forty years, proving himself in every way an exemplary pastor.

  1. I am downloading these for my elderly neighbour. Having listened to the St. Ignatius S.O.D. I can say that I’m sure he’ll enjoy them but would add that I think the background music should be faded a little more whilst you’re talking. Thanks.

    • Hi there, thanks for your feedback – and for sharing Cradio with you neighbour! We’re sorry about the sound levels for the Saint of the Day podcasts. These recordings are from back when Cradio was just starting out, so we will have a look into our archives to see if we can find the original files and redo them- although it might take some time, so please bear with us. In the meantime your neighbour might also enjoy our new ‘Minute with Mary’ series as well, and there is a wide range of content in our library. God bless đŸ™‚
