In the name of Christ, stop During the fourth century, St. Telmachus visited Rome. As he arrived, had followed the crown into the Colliseum and watched as the gladiators came out and fought each other to the death. The crowd cheered and rejoiced. He was horrified by what he saw, aand down the steps, crawled over the wall and jumped into the arena. He stood between the two gladiators and cried out "In the name of Christ, stop!". The crowd laughed and applauded. One of the gladiators tried to push him aside, but he got up again and cried, "In the name of Christ, stop!". The crowd shifted from amused to annoyed, and began to cheer for the gladiators to kill the man. One of the gladiators drew his sword and thrust it through St. Telemachus. As he lay dying on the floor, he cried out one last time "In the name of Christ, stop". History tells us, that the crowd dispersed, the gladiators laid down their arms, and that was the last tournament ever held in the great arena in Rome. One man, whose purpose in life was to stand up and SHOW to the world, "this isn't what life is about, there is a better way". While the world tells us to go, to move, to constantly strive for success, who now tells us "In the name of Christ, stop"
