Church Fathers Day 11: St. Ignatius of Antioch: Letter to Polycarp: complete

I'm using a plan that has me reading through 10 of the Church Fathers during Lent this year. Today was St. Ignatius of Antioch: Letter to the Polycarp. It's the last reading from St. Ignatius in the lenten readings.

I love it, more calls for unity: Have a regard to preserve unity, than which nothing is better. I also see more instruction that is similar to what is found in Scripture: care for widows, love for all, etc. All in all, a rather short letter, too.
