Church Fathers Day 9: St. Ignatius of Antioch: Letter to the Philadelphians: 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 Philadelphians.

After yesterday's reading concentrating so much on St. Ignatius' preparations for martyrdom, today's readings that focused on unity within the church were welcome. I like how he continues to harp on the need for unity, and for clearly defined organization and governance.
