Memorial of Saint Ambrose, Bishop and Doctor of the Church


On this memorial of St. Ambrose, learn about his skill as a pastor and love for the poor.


"Goodness always tends to spread . . . If we wish to lead a dignified and fulfilling life, we have to reach out to others and seek their good." (Evangelii Gaudium, no. 9)


"We pray that our Catholic people will be set ablaze with a desire to live their faith fully and share it freely with others. May their eagerness to share the faith bring a transformation to our nation and, with missionary dedication, even to the whole world. We ask God to open the heart of every Catholic, to see the need for the Gospel in each life, in our nation and on our planet."


You can evangelize just by witnessing to the faith through your everyday life lived with love, honesty, hope, and faith.
