Ordination and Christian 
              Ministry Differences


 

What is The Difference Between What Ordained Ministers Do, Verses Those With Christian Ministry Jobs?

Christian ministry jobs vary greatly. An Ordained Minister primarily gets ordained, becomes a minister to lead a Church and/or to administer Sacraments, such as officiating weddings and funerals or baptisms. 

Pastor and/or Sacramental Minister

The Pastor is usually an ordained minister who is the leader and shepherd of a Church. Some individuals get ordained and become a minister not so much to lead a Church, but to administer sacraments. An ordained minister is not required to lead a Church, however all ordained ministers are at the very least expected to administer sacraments.

Working in the ministry field can be accomplished not only by working in the more traditional ministry type jobs as captioned below, but those within health care, mental health, alcohol and drug abuse, EMT's, law enforcement, fireman, teachers, hospice care, food programs, attorneys, politicians, public servants and many others become ministers as well. Individuals in these areas not only work within their field, but they readily make available themselves to hold services and/or to administer sacraments in addition thereto.

We Do Not Ordain Anyone to do Nothing, Nor Does Anyone Become Ordained to do Nothing!

Evangelist

The evangelist in the Bible was probably a missionary as we know them today. But we have somehow divided their tasks into two fields of ministry.

The evangelist is an itinerant preacher who ministers to many Churches by preaching evangelistic messages to the lost. He also preaches messages that encourage Christian living and evangelism to the believers.

Biblical Teacher

The teacher may or may not be a position in and of itself, depending on the ministry in which one is involved.

Missionary

The missionary is one who goes as a minister to the mission field. That mission field may be local or foreign country.

Chaplain

The chaplain is a minister who ministers to a specialty group of people. The chaplain ministry is used by the military, by hospitals, by animal clinics (animal ministry) and by some businesses.

Rescue Mission Director

The Rescue Mission director is a minister who leads the ministry to the poor and homeless in his area.

Christian Counselor

The Christian Counselor is the minister who has a Christian ministry job providing Christian counseling to those who need spiritual and emotional and various other kinds of help. Degrees and Certification are usually required over and above ordination.

Camp or Conference Director

The camp or conference director is the minister who directs the activities at a Christian campground or Christian conference center where camps, retreats, conferences and meetings occur.

Ministry Director

The ministry director is the minister who heads up a ministry that is not attached to the local Church but still ministers to Churches directly or indirectly.

Pulpit Supply Ministry

The Pulpit Supply Ministry can be done by part-time ministers or retired ministers. It can also be done by ministers who direct ministries that allow the director or minister to be off on weekends.

Interim Pastor or Director

The Interim Pastor takes over the pastoral role of a Church or ministry when they are without a senior leader. While the Church or ministry is looking to permanently fill that spot, the interim pastor or leader takes over.

Bi-vocational Minister

This is the ministers who pastors or directs a ministry that cannot or does not, for some reason, pay him a fulltime salary. This leader agrees to work a secular job like the Apostle Paul did making tents, and also lead the Church or ministry.

Lay-Minister

The Lay Minister is basically one who feels called to minister but does not necessarily feel called to the ministry. They usually minister through the local Church, but continue to work in a secular job or vocation.


Halloween - 
Distinctly a Christian Holiday


“Halloween” is simply a contraction for All Hallow’s Eve (Hallow-Even—Hallow-E’n—Halloween). The word “hallow” means “saint,” in that “hallow” is just an alternative form of the word “holy” (“hallowed be Thy name”). All Saints’ Day is November 1. It is the celebration of the victory of the saints in union with Christ. The observance of various celebrations of All Saints arose in the late 300s, and these were united and fixed on November 1 in the late 700s. The origin of All Saints Day and All Saints Eve in Mediterranean Christianity had nothing to do with Celtic Druidism or the Church’s fight against Druidism (assuming there ever was any such thing as Druidism, which is actually a myth concocted in the 19th century by neo-pagans)

Ordination

"A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life. No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people, in the experience of fraternal love. We are designed with a dreaming brain and a hopeful spirit; it is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication, and courageous action to bring that dream to life."

Do you wish to pursue a vocation in ministry - become a minister, get ordained or serve as a wedding officiant? We provide ordination to men and women enabling work in all facets of Christian Ministry with ministers in the USA, Canada, UK, Africa, South America, Germany, India, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, Australia, China, Mexico and many other countries throughout the world.

Universal Life Church
Easy Three Step
Wedding Guide


If you are already a Minister with us or perhaps you have an upcoming wedding yourself and you are looking for a friend or family member to officiate the ceremony. With the Universal Life Church World Headquarters it is as easy as 1-2-3.

weddings9b 


1.) Get ordained, go to http://www.ulcnetwork.com Click on Become a Minister, fill out the form and submit. For ordination to be validated it must be checked by human hands, with personal contact in-person or by telephone. Online ordination by itself is NOT valid. Upon validation you will then receive instructions on how to receive your ordination certificate, letter in good standing and minister id card. (Note: In some locations documentation from ULC World Headquarters maybe required, just let us know what you need).

2.) Through the official Universal Life Church Webstore http://www.ulcwebstore.com We offer an extensive array of handbooks, training materials and wedding manuals such as: The Nelson’s Minister Manual, The Baker’s Wedding Handbook, Marriage Ministry: A Guidebook, Focus on Family Marriage Ministry Guide and The Complete Book of Christian Wedding Vows. Furthermore, we offer a Pyle Pro 50 Watt PA/Amplifier, Wedding Certificates and a whole lot more. Our Ministers are the best trained, well equipped and most professional wedding officiants in the world.

weddings9c
3.) Unlike other online ordination services, we are legal anywhere in the world to allow our ministers to perform wedding services. It is highly recommended for you to contact the county clerk or wedding authority within the locality of where the wedding is scheduled to take place at least sixty (60) days prior to the wedding ceremony date, just to insure you have all the documentation necessary to perform the service. This will allow time for example, if you need special documentation from the ULC World Headquarters.


weddings9eUniversal Life Church
Wedding Guide Part II

Officiating weddings is one of the most common things we do as ministers and a huge reason many of folks choose to become ordained. There is nothing wrong with becoming ordained to just officiate weddings. A few weeks ago we published our Universal Life Church – Three Step Wedding Guide. This here is its sequel.

1.) When you get ordained you can not expect couples to automatically to knock on your door or to come out of the woodwork, that are looking to be married.

2.) Leave your business card around time at bridal shoppes, bridal boutiques, photographers, caterers, doctors offices, suit rental stores, party rental stores, reception venues and etc.

3.) Advertise on Craigslist, Gathering Guide, Wedding Bee and Others. Just Google Wedding Officiant Directories and there will be no shortage. Many of these will accept your advertisement or listing completely free without charge.

You cannot sit back and do nothing, you must promote yourself as a minister. If you follow these three steps, you will have no shortage of marriages to officiate at.

PLEASE HELP SUPPORT - UNIVERSAL LIFE CHURCH

Proceeds from the ULC "Rawleigh Products" Fundraiser and others enable such causes as our ULC Minister Emergency Relief Fund, our ULC Food Bank Distribution Center, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Children's Miracle Network and many others. Not only do you receive an extremely high quality product, your benevolence and love helps many.




Universal Life Church
Rawleigh Product's Fundraiser

While Churches still receive donations in the traditional sense, it seems that there is an ongoing trend where folks today expect something in return for their cash outlay. We as a Church have tried Pizza Fundraisers with Little Caesers Pizza, fundraisers with McDonalds, candy bars, and etc. One of our best fundraisers through the years has been with "Rawleigh Products." We haven't done anything with Rawleigh Products since 2011, but that is about to change.

For fundraisers, we do not use any product I do not believe in. I have used Rawleigh products personally for 30 years. Not only do I believe in them, I believe they are the absolute best of their kind that money can buy. ALL ULC Ministers are welcome to start their own Rawleigh product fundraiser if you so choose. Rawleigh fundraisers will net you a 25-40% profit off the suggested retail price.

Depending on the success of the Rawleigh Fundraiser we may do up brochures and promote even more the Rawleigh tradition. Again a Rawleigh Fundraiser helps provide money to the Church and it provides a way for folks to donate. Ministers, followers and parishioners actually get something in return that will be a great benefit to each, plus it really helps out the Church. There is 41 different Rawleigh products we have added to the Universal Life Church Webstore.

In 1889, W.T. Rawleigh began selling a small line of “Good Health Products” by horse and a mortgaged buggy. It was said in one hand came William Rawleigh with his bottle of Elixer and in the other hand came Reverend William Rawleigh with the Holy Bible. Rawleigh traveled the roads in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa. In the early 1900's, Rawleigh settled in Freeport, Illinois.


By 1922, approximately 20 million households contained Rawleigh products. For more than a century, Rawleigh customers have come to rely not only on quality products and excellent service, but on the exceptional ideals and principles on which the company was founded.

In October of 1985, the President and Presiding Bishop of the Universal Life Church World Headquarters, Brother Michael was invited by the Rawleigh receptionist, Judy to have lunch with William T. Rawleigh IV, great grandson to founder W.T. Rawleigh. The torch was passed from the last surviving Rawleigh family member as the company was sold to an individual who relocated the W.T. Rawleigh Co. to Rocky Mount, NC. Again it was sold and relocated to Columbia, SC. In 1992 Harry Hersey here in Florida purchased the W.T. Rawleigh Co. Florida has become the home of the W.T. Rawleigh Co. Harry Hersey passed away two years ago, but the W.T. Rawleigh Company lives on.


Brother Michael and the Universal Life Church World Headquarters is proud to carry on the unsurpassed quality and the Rawleigh tradition. We are proud of our heritage and strive to continue the goals that Reverend W.T. Rawleigh and his family achieved on their road to success. We've tried pizzas, candy, car washes, you name it we've tried it for fundraisers. But nothing has ever worked as well as Rawleigh Products. The same salves, liniments, black pepper, seasonings, extracts and flavorings used by our grandmothers are still here today with the exact same formulas and ingredients as always providing to you the absolute best quality of any similar product on the market today.

St Ignatius of Antioch - October 17th

We Celebrate St Ignatius of Antioch
Founder: Universal Life Church name

Born 35 AD Died 108 AD
Converted From Paganism to Christianity
Appointed by Peter as a Bishop
Wrote Seven Letters
To the Ephesians
To the Magnesians
Letter to the Trallians
To the Romans
To the Philadelphians
To the Smyrnaeans
To Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna

Within the Letter to the Smyrnaeans, it was St Ignatius of Antioch in 107AD that made the first reference ever to the Church of Jesus Christ (Roman Church at the time) being referred to in name as the Universal Church of the Life of Christ. It was from this reference other churches spun including the Catholic Church which was derived from the Greek Adjective for Universal, katholikos. The founding of the Universal Life Church can clearly be traced back to 107AD.

Martyred - Sentenced to Death by being fed to Lions.

In the last 50 years, a group led by a twice defrocked Christian Minister who began as Life Church in 1959 and who three years later incorporated using the name of their political party (Universal Party or Flying Saucer Party) have attempted to claim origin of the churches name. Unfortunately this group can't change history, nor can they change the definition of the word universal from its Greek origin which was katholikos and contrary to definition of the name this 1959 Life Church is not a Christian Church and far from it.

"I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire."
The second Bishop of Antioch, Syria, this disciple of the beloved Disciple John was consecrated Bishop around the year 69 by the Apostle Peter, the first Pope. A holy man who was deeply loved by the Christian faithful, he always made it his special care to defend “orthodoxy” (right teaching) and “orthopraxy” (right practice) among the early Christians.


In 107, during the reign of the brutal Emperor Trajan, this holy Bishop was wrongfully sentenced to death because he refused to renounce the Christian faith. He was taken under guard to Rome where he was to be brutally devoured by wild beasts in a public spectacle. During his journey, his travels took him through Asia Minor and Greece. He made good use of the time by writing seven letters of encouragement, instruction and inspiration to the Christians in those communities. We still have these letters as a great treasure of the Church today.

The content of the letters addressed the hierarchy and structure of the Church as well as the content of the orthodox Christian faith. It was Bishop Ignatius who first used the term “universal” to describe the whole Church. These letters connect us to the early Church and the unbroken, clear teaching of the Apostles which was given to them directly by Jesus Christ. They also reveal the holiness of a man of God who became himself a living letter of Christ. The shedding his blood in the witness of holy martyrdom was the culmination of a life lived conformed to Jesus Christ. Ignatius sought to offer himself, in Christ, for the sake of the Church which he loved. His holy martyrdom occurred in the year 108.

In his pastoral letters he regularly thanked his brother and sister Christians for their concern for his well being but insisted on following through in his final witness of fidelity: "I know what is to my advantage. At last I am becom¬ing his disciple. May nothing entice me till I happily make my way to Jesus Christ! Fire, cross, struggles with wild beasts, wrenching of bones, mangling of limbs-let them come to me, provided only I make my way to Jesus Christ. I would rather die and come to Jesus Christ than be king over the entire earth. Him I seek who died for us; him I love who rose again because of us."

Bishop Ignatius was not afraid of death. He knew that it had been defeated by the Master. He followed the Lord Jesus into his Passion, knowing that he would rise with Him in his Resurrection. He wrote to the disciples in Rome: "Permit me to imitate my suffering God ... I am God's wheat and I shall be ground by the teeth of beasts, that I may become the pure bread of Christ.” The beauty of this Eucharistic symbolism in these words reflects the deep theology of a mystic. He was dedicated to defending the true teaching handed down by the Apostles so that the brothers and sisters in the early Christian communities, and we who stand on their shoulders, would never be led astray by false teaching. He urged them to always listen to their Bishops because they were the successors of the Apostles. He died a Martyrs death in Rome, devoured by two lions in one of the cruel demonstrations of Roman excess and animosity toward the true faith. Anticipating this event he wrote these inspired words:

A letter to the Romans by St Ignatius of Antioch

“I am God's wheat and shall be ground by the teeth of wild animals. I am writing to all the churches to let it be known that I will gladly die for God if only you do not stand in my way. I plead with you: show me no untimely kindness. Let me be food for the wild beasts, for they are my way to God. I am God’s wheat and shall be ground by their teeth so that I may become Christ’s pure bread. Pray to Christ for me that the animals will be the means of making me a sacrificial victim for God. No earthly pleasures, no kingdoms of this world can benefit me in any way. I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire.


The time for my birth is close at hand. Forgive me, my brothers. Do not stand in the way of my birth to real life; do not wish me stillborn. My desire is to belong to God. Do not, then, hand me back to the world. Do not try to tempt me with material things. Let me attain pure light. Only on my arrival there can I be fully a human being. Give me the privilege of imitating the passion of my God. If you have him in your heart, you will understand what I wish. You will sympathize with me because you will know what urges me on.

The prince of this world is determined to lay hold of me and to undermine my will which is intent on God. Let none of you here help him; instead show yourselves on my side, which is also God’s side. Do not talk about Jesus Christ as long as you love this world. Do not harbor envious thoughts. And supposing I should see you, if then I should beg you to intervene on my behalf, do not believe what I say. Believe instead what I am now writing to you. For though I am alive as I write to you – still - my real desire is to die. My love of this life has been crucified, and there is no yearning in me for any earthly thing. Rather within me is the living water which says deep inside me: “Come to the Father.” I no longer take pleasure in perishable food or in the delights of this world. I want only God’s bread, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, formed of the seed of David, and for drink I crave his blood, which is love that cannot perish.

I am no longer willing to live a merely human life, and you can bring about my wish if you will. Please, then, do me this favour, so that you in turn may meet with equal kindness. Put briefly, this is my request: believe what I am saying to you. Jesus Christ himself will make it clear to you that I am saying the truth. Only truth can come from that mouth by which the Father has truly spoken. Pray for me that I may obtain my desire. I have not written to you as a mere man would, but as one who knows the mind of God. If I am condemned to suffer, I will take it that you wish me well. If my case is postponed, I can only think that you wish me harm.”

"The Universal Life Church World Headquarters defends the unborn, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, educates the young, welcomes refugees, and cares for the sick, both at home and abroad. They believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God."

Ordination

"A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life. No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people, in the experience of fraternal love. We are designed with a dreaming brain and a hopeful spirit; it is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication, and courageous action to bring that dream to life."

Do you wish to pursue a vocation in ministry - become a minister, get ordained or serve as a wedding officiant? We provide ordination to men and women enabling work in all facets of Christian Ministry with ministers in the USA, Canada, UK, Africa, South America, Germany, India, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, Australia, China, Mexico and many other countries throughout the world.

   Actions and Appearance

 

Remember how others perceive you as a minister; It is not based on your calling (your calling is merely the issuance of a summons from God). It is not based on the certificate you hang on your wall or the Minister ID Card you have in your wallet (your credentials are to appease the authorities). It is not based on the education level you have achieved (your education is for your own personal growth and wisdom). It is not based on your title (titles within the Church are simply utilized to define your expected job duties or job description). IT IS BASED ON TAKING ACTION AND YOUR APPEARANCE!

Those of us here at World Headquarters we go above and beyond. Why? How we are perceived so will you be perceived. If we look professional, this will only add to your repertoire and portfolio. Church and Religion is a highly volatile subject matter. There is always going to be critics and naysayers, those that call the Christian faith or our Church a scam or fake. Despite all the evidence that supports the existence of Christ, there still are a few misguided souls that just can't see the light.

We will always have our detractors, those who call our belief, our Church or our ordination fake. Regardless carry your head up high, be who you proclaim yourself to be. Look professional and act accordingly. As ordained ministers we look to lead such as a shepherd does over its flock and we look to administer sacraments to anyone and whomever accepts our Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Halloween - 
Distinctly a Christian Holiday


“Halloween” is simply a contraction for All Hallow’s Eve (Hallow-Even—Hallow-E’n—Halloween). The word “hallow” means “saint,” in that “hallow” is just an alternative form of the word “holy” (“hallowed be Thy name”). All Saints’ Day is November 1. It is the celebration of the victory of the saints in union with Christ. The observance of various celebrations of All Saints arose in the late 300s, and these were united and fixed on November 1 in the late 700s. The origin of All Saints Day and All Saints Eve in Mediterranean Christianity had nothing to do with Celtic Druidism or the Church’s fight against Druidism (assuming there ever was any such thing as Druidism, which is actually a myth concocted in the 19th century by neo-pagans)





St Ignatius of Antioch - October 17th

We Celebrate St Ignatius of Antioch
Founder: Universal Life Church name

Born 35 AD Died 108 AD
Converted From Paganism to Christianity
Appointed by Peter as a Bishop
Wrote Seven Letters
To the Ephesians
To the Magnesians
Letter to the Trallians
To the Romans
To the Philadelphians
To the Smyrnaeans
To Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna

Within the Letter to the Smyrnaeans, it was St Ignatius of Antioch in 107AD that made the first reference ever to the Church of Jesus Christ (Roman Church at the time) being referred to in name as the Universal Church of the Life of Christ. It was from this reference other churches spun including the Catholic Church which was derived from the Greek Adjective for Universal, katholikos. The founding of the Universal Life Church can clearly be traced back to 107AD.

Martyred - Sentenced to Death by being fed to Lions.

In the last 50 years, a group led by a twice defrocked Christian Minister who began as Life Church in 1959 and who three years later incorporated using the name of their political party (Universal Party or Flying Saucer Party) have attempted to claim origin of the churches name. Unfortunately this group can't change history, nor can they change the definition of the word universal from its Greek origin which was katholikos and contrary to definition of the name this 1959 Life Church is not a Christian Church and far from it.

"I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire."
The second Bishop of Antioch, Syria, this disciple of the beloved Disciple John was consecrated Bishop around the year 69 by the Apostle Peter, the first Pope. A holy man who was deeply loved by the Christian faithful, he always made it his special care to defend “orthodoxy” (right teaching) and “orthopraxy” (right practice) among the early Christians.


In 107, during the reign of the brutal Emperor Trajan, this holy Bishop was wrongfully sentenced to death because he refused to renounce the Christian faith. He was taken under guard to Rome where he was to be brutally devoured by wild beasts in a public spectacle. During his journey, his travels took him through Asia Minor and Greece. He made good use of the time by writing seven letters of encouragement, instruction and inspiration to the Christians in those communities. We still have these letters as a great treasure of the Church today.

The content of the letters addressed the hierarchy and structure of the Church as well as the content of the orthodox Christian faith. It was Bishop Ignatius who first used the term “universal” to describe the whole Church. These letters connect us to the early Church and the unbroken, clear teaching of the Apostles which was given to them directly by Jesus Christ. They also reveal the holiness of a man of God who became himself a living letter of Christ. The shedding his blood in the witness of holy martyrdom was the culmination of a life lived conformed to Jesus Christ. Ignatius sought to offer himself, in Christ, for the sake of the Church which he loved. His holy martyrdom occurred in the year 108.

In his pastoral letters he regularly thanked his brother and sister Christians for their concern for his well being but insisted on following through in his final witness of fidelity: "I know what is to my advantage. At last I am becom¬ing his disciple. May nothing entice me till I happily make my way to Jesus Christ! Fire, cross, struggles with wild beasts, wrenching of bones, mangling of limbs-let them come to me, provided only I make my way to Jesus Christ. I would rather die and come to Jesus Christ than be king over the entire earth. Him I seek who died for us; him I love who rose again because of us."

Bishop Ignatius was not afraid of death. He knew that it had been defeated by the Master. He followed the Lord Jesus into his Passion, knowing that he would rise with Him in his Resurrection. He wrote to the disciples in Rome: "Permit me to imitate my suffering God ... I am God's wheat and I shall be ground by the teeth of beasts, that I may become the pure bread of Christ.” The beauty of this Eucharistic symbolism in these words reflects the deep theology of a mystic. He was dedicated to defending the true teaching handed down by the Apostles so that the brothers and sisters in the early Christian communities, and we who stand on their shoulders, would never be led astray by false teaching. He urged them to always listen to their Bishops because they were the successors of the Apostles. He died a Martyrs death in Rome, devoured by two lions in one of the cruel demonstrations of Roman excess and animosity toward the true faith. Anticipating this event he wrote these inspired words:

A letter to the Romans by St Ignatius of Antioch

“I am God's wheat and shall be ground by the teeth of wild animals. I am writing to all the churches to let it be known that I will gladly die for God if only you do not stand in my way. I plead with you: show me no untimely kindness. Let me be food for the wild beasts, for they are my way to God. I am God’s wheat and shall be ground by their teeth so that I may become Christ’s pure bread. Pray to Christ for me that the animals will be the means of making me a sacrificial victim for God. No earthly pleasures, no kingdoms of this world can benefit me in any way. I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire.


The time for my birth is close at hand. Forgive me, my brothers. Do not stand in the way of my birth to real life; do not wish me stillborn. My desire is to belong to God. Do not, then, hand me back to the world. Do not try to tempt me with material things. Let me attain pure light. Only on my arrival there can I be fully a human being. Give me the privilege of imitating the passion of my God. If you have him in your heart, you will understand what I wish. You will sympathize with me because you will know what urges me on.

The prince of this world is determined to lay hold of me and to undermine my will which is intent on God. Let none of you here help him; instead show yourselves on my side, which is also God’s side. Do not talk about Jesus Christ as long as you love this world. Do not harbor envious thoughts. And supposing I should see you, if then I should beg you to intervene on my behalf, do not believe what I say. Believe instead what I am now writing to you. For though I am alive as I write to you – still - my real desire is to die. My love of this life has been crucified, and there is no yearning in me for any earthly thing. Rather within me is the living water which says deep inside me: “Come to the Father.” I no longer take pleasure in perishable food or in the delights of this world. I want only God’s bread, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, formed of the seed of David, and for drink I crave his blood, which is love that cannot perish.

I am no longer willing to live a merely human life, and you can bring about my wish if you will. Please, then, do me this favour, so that you in turn may meet with equal kindness. Put briefly, this is my request: believe what I am saying to you. Jesus Christ himself will make it clear to you that I am saying the truth. Only truth can come from that mouth by which the Father has truly spoken. Pray for me that I may obtain my desire. I have not written to you as a mere man would, but as one who knows the mind of God. If I am condemned to suffer, I will take it that you wish me well. If my case is postponed, I can only think that you wish me harm.”
