Calendar Details for 07 Dec 2017

SAINT AMBROSE, bishop & doctor of the Church
Originally, he was a government official, he became bishop in a most extraordinary way. After the death of the local bishop, the Catholics and Arians got into a vehement conflict about who should be the new bishop.
 
Ambrose was trying to keep the peace and settle the two groups down when someone—allegedly a small boy—began chanting “Ambrose, bishop!”
 
Soon the two groups began chanting together that Ambrose should be the new bishop.
 
(The Arians, apparently, felt that although Ambrose was Catholic in belief he would be a kinder bishop than they otherwise would likely get.) 
 
This set of circumstances is extraordinary enough, but what’s even more extraordinary is that Ambrose wasn’t even a Christian yet. He was an unbaptized catechumen!
 
Saint Ambrose, pray for us!
