St Ambrose (7 Dec 2021)

Jesus said, ‘Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of the treasury what is new and what is old.’ (Matthew 13:52)


God of hosts, who called Ambrose from the governor’s throne to be a bishop in your Church, and an intrepid champion of your faithful people: mercifully grant that, as he did not fear to rebuke rulers, so we, with like courage, may contend for the faith we have received; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
