The Saint - Ambrose

One of the Most Important Fathers of our Church

Great scholars and saints consider St. Ambrose among the most excellent preachers in all the history of the Church. However, there was much more to this Father of the Church than just preaching and we are blessed to have had such leader. His leadership on religious freedom, fighting heresies and

morality had a great influence on the Church. He was also instrumental in

getting another important Church Father, Saint Augustine, into the faith. St.

Augustine speaks of him as “a faithful teacher of the Church, and even at the

risk of his life, a most strenuous defender of Catholic truth,” and “whose

skill, constancy, labors, and perils, both on account of what he did and what he

wrote, the Roman world unhesitatingly proclaims”. St. Ambrose never wavered from his duties and his faith even under the pressure of death.  Although he was

later honored as both a Doctor of the Faith and Father of the Church, he had a

very unusual path to becoming a bishop. Click picture below to read the full
