In due time it will not be surprising, I think, if our LCC comes into existence with a ready-made Latin motto, classical but taught anew by our professors, our undergraduates, and our dedicated supporters, to our churches and to our nation: REPETITIO MATER STUDIORUM.
Behind all of Ignatius’ words and teaching is the heart of a true pastor and follower of Jesus. His concern, like that of St. Paul, was always the welfare and faithfulness of the individual Christians who made up the congregations to which he wrote, and the welfare of those congregations corporately.
Therefore find comfort in this: Christ suffered such anguish for all of your sins. Yes, His soul was sorrowed for you. He was troubled for you. He was deeply distressed for you, so that you do not need to sorrow forever, nor be troubled, nor be deeply distressed.
