St Ignatius of Antioch.

"Almighty ever-living God, who adorn the sacred body of your Church with the confessions of holy Martyrs, grant, we pray, that, just as the glorious passion of Saint Ignatius of Antioch, which we celebrate today, brought him eternal splendor, so it may be for us unending protection. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen." – Collect for the feast of St Ignatius of Antioch (17 October). This sculpture of the Saint is from the facade of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC.
