St. Ignatius of Antioch on the Eucharist

"I have no taste for corruptible food nor for the pleasures of this life.  I desire the bread of God, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, who was of the seed of David; and for drink I desire His blood, which is love incorruptible."
St. Ignatius of Antioch, "Epistle to the Romans," c. 105 A.D.
