Polycarp is not a fish....

This week, my column A Word in Season features a look at the life and death of the great saint and martyr, Polycarp.

Here's a tease:

Imagine experiencing the satisfying aroma of bread baking in the oven when you should be observing a hideous death; imagine one man's life being consumed by the Eucharistic majesty even as he prepares to breathe his last.
Everything about Polycarp's life declared: "I am a Christian."
Ok, now go read the rest here.
