St. Ambrose

About St. Ambrose

St. Ambrose was born somewhere between 337 and 340 AD in Trier, Germany.  During the fourth century, he became an important, influential religious figure.  He was also the Bishop of Mila and is one of the first four doctors of the Church.

The Legend of St. Ambrose

The father of St. Ambrose was a praetorian prefect of Gaul and his mother was an educated woman.  They were a practicing Christian family and both of St. Ambrose’s brothers were also canonized as saints.

Legend has it that when St. Ambrose was an infant, a swarm of bees landed on his face.  Instead of stinging him, they left a drop of honey on his face.  In many later artworks of St. Ambrose, there are beehives and bees depicted in the painting.  Because of this legend, he received the title, St. Ambrose Patron Saint of bee keepers, bees, candle makers, and domestic animals.

St. Ambrose Is Educated

St. Ambrose’s father died at an early age and St. Ambrose decided to follow in his father’s footsteps.  He went to Rome and studied literature, rhetoric, and law.  In 372, St. Ambrose was made Governor of Liguria and Emilia.  His headquarters was located in Milan.  He remained Governor for two years and was then named Bishop of Milan.

St. Ambrose – Bishop of Milan

Once St. Ambrose was ordained Bishop of Milan, he gave up all his worldly possessions.  He gave his money to the poor, donated his lands, keeping only enough to take care of his sister.

St. Ambrose – Great Theologian

St. Ambrose is considered one of the greatest theologians of his time.  One of his main philosophies was to remain flexible with regard to religious customs while traveling to other churches.  He said,
"When I am at Rome, I fast on a Saturday; when I am at Milan, I do not. Follow the custom of the church where you are."  This quote by St. Ambrose is still used today but has been shortened to, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”

St. Ambrose Feast Day

St. Ambrose Feast Day is celebrated on December 7.  Many Catholics pray to St. Ambrose on this day and wear a St. Ambrose medal, St. Ambrose pendant, or a St. Ambrose medallion in his honor.
