Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol I:
IGNATIUS: Chapter XII.—Salutations.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XII.—Salutations.

I salute the holy presbytery. I salute the sacred deacons, and that person most dear to me, 1258 whom may I behold, through the Holy Spirit, occupying my place when I shall attain to Christ. My soul be in place of his. I salute the sub-deacons, the readers, the singers, the doorkeepers, the labourers, 1259 the exorcists, the confessors. 1260 I salute the keepers of the holy gates, the deaconesses in Christ. I salute the virgins betrothed to Christ, of whom may I have joy in the Lord Jesus. 1261 I salute the people of the Lord, from the smallest to the greatest, and all my sisters in the Lord.
