Telemachus was a Christian monk who lived about 1,600 years ago in a monastery just outside Rome.  

While visiting Rome, Telemechus was swept up by a mob and he found himself pushed into the coliseum. He was horrified by what he saw. He saw the bloody gladiator fights that the Roman people staged for the entertainment of the crowds…

As the gladiators fought, Telemechus - - stunned and outraged - - jumped form his seat and ran into the arena begging the Gladiators to stop fighting.  But the crowd roared with laughter……until one of the gladiators ran his sword through the small, unarmed man of God.  Dying, Telemachus didn't beg for his life.

He only said one thing over and over…

"In the name of God, stop.."

"In the name of God, stop.."

The crowd grew silent .

One by one people left the coliseum. That very day, the Emperor sealed a mandate ending the brutal gladiator contests forever. Telemachus took a stand for Truth. It cost him his life, but in the name of TRUTH he changed Rome - - and history - - forever!

One man took a stand and changed the world.   It doesn't take many.  Will you be one?
