Today is the feast of St. Ambrose, who seemed to bring out both the worst and the best in people. For example, St. Jerome couldn’t stand him. HERE
If you are interested in learning more about this titanic figure of the 4th century, who helped God to convert St. Augustine and faced down heretics and Emperors, one the better books about him is Ambrose by Boniface Ramsey. [UK HERE]
I am happy to have the company of Ambrose in a special way: a first class relic of the great saint and doctor.
Ask St. Ambrose today to intercede before God’s throne am implore graces for the recovery of pro-abortion catholic politicians and for strength, especially, for bishops who must deal with them.
Fill in the names in your prayers!
How do you think St. Ambrose would have dealt with, say, Nancy Pelosi?
