Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 18, 2013 Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari all who refused to offer the prescribed sacrifice. Ignatius was instantly aware of the Ciao Bella, Saint Ignatius was a convert to the Faith at a young age. He was born in Syria about the year 50 AD. Ignatius is one of the five Apostolic Fathers (the earli- est authoritative group of the Church Fathers). More than one of the earliest ecclesi- astical writers has given credence, though apparently without good reason, to the legend that Ignatius was the child whom the Savior took up in His arms, as described in Mark 9:35. It is also be- lieved, and with great prob- ability, that, with his friend Polycarp, he was among the disciples of the Apostle St. John. If we include St. Peter, Ignatius was the third Bishop of Antioch, a See he governed for forty years. According to an account entitled "Martyriumignatii," written by Philo deacon of Tarsus, and Rheus Agath- opus, a Syrian, who accom- panied Ignatius to Rome, the following events took place in the ninth year of the reign of the emperor Trajan. Flushed with victory over the Scythians and Dacians, Trajan attempted to unite his empire by decreeing that the Christians should join with their pagan neighbors in the worship of the pagan gods. A general persecution was threatened, and death was named as the penalty for dangers that this impossible decree threatened. He em- ployed all the means within his reach to ignore the decree of the emperor. The efforts of Ignatius, not to comply with the decree be- came known to the Roman authorities. He was soon arrested and led before Trajan, who was then visit- ing Antioch. Ignatius was accused by the emperor him- self of violating the imperial edict, and of inciting others to do so. He was then ordered to be put in chains and sent to Rome where he would be put to death in the Colos- seum by wild beasts, a spec- tacle for the people. Ignatius wrote of the ter- rible trials he endured dur- ing his journey to Rome. In his letter to the Romans, he wrote, "I fight with wild beasts, by land and sea, by night and by day, being bound amidst ten leopards, even a company of soldiers, who only grow worse when they are kindly treated. Despite all this, his journey was a kind of triumph. News of his fate, his destination, and his probable itinerary had gone swiftly before him and in several places along the road his fellow-Christians greeted him words of comfort and reverential homage. According to Christian leg- end, after Ignatius' martyr- dom by lions in the Colos- seum, his remains were carried back to Antioch by his companions and were interred outside the city gates. The reputed remains of Ignatius were moved by the Emperor Theodosius II to the Tychaeum or Temple of Tyche, which had been converted into a church dedicated to Ignatius. In 637 the relics were trans- ferred to the Basilica di San Clemente in Rome. The feast day of Saint Ignatius of Antioch is celebrated on October 17a. i iiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiii i i Most of the time we take the "little" things we use in our daily lives for granted. Imagine life without a Nail File? When you're done clip- ping your claws what would you do to shape and smooth them? Marie Antoinette was obsessed with her pencil like pumice stone that she used to file and shape her nails. She started a feminine trend in the French Court of Versailles where the ladies were admired for their well- shaped nails. A foot doctor in the 1830s designed the "orange stick" from a dental tool that woman used to file their nails. Thank you, Dr. Sitts! At a time before this dis- covery, women used many methods to take down long nails including acids, differ- ent metals and scissors! Yikes! In my nail-tech pro- fession I treat Natural Nails All. THAT ZAZZ by Mary N. DiZazzo Nail Files -- An Important Tool! gently as enhancements to a person's hands. The modern Nail File was developed at the end of the 19th century. There are many kinds of Nail Files depending on the need of what one desires. The "old fashion" emery board may still be popular however, if you are trying to grow nails, I would consider them too course with a tenancy to dry out the natural nail. When filing always use light strokes in one direction only. Crystal files are best for home use and are quite durable. Also known as a glass file, they are made of tempered glass and have a granular surface best used on Natural Nails. Buffers have a light abra- sive and are used to bring nails to a high-shine. Files used professionally by mani- curists are also a great find for home use as they are designed to the needs of each individual with many grit surfaces to choose from. When choosing a file for your Natural Nail make sure the grit (surface) is extra fine. Your toenails may need a medium grit since they are usually tougher. Files are an important treasure in our everyday lives. Now go out to your fay salon and get a professional manicure and experience a fine treat!
