There has one object been disclosed on earth
That might commend the place; but now 'tis gone: 
Jesus is with the Father, and demands 
His members to be there. Him do I seek 
Who died, who rose for us. In gaining Him,
I shall be rich enough.

A fragment from "The Martyrdom of St Ignatius", by John Gambold
