Born in Germany, sent to Rome after his father's death and eventually became a lawyer. He was famous for his rhetoric and learning. The origin of his patronage to chandlers (candlemakers) is unclear, but it may have to do with the fact that a halo or bright light was seen around him by his scribe when he was writing a commentary on the 43rd Psalm. His scribe described his face as "white as snow."
He was also known for his writings and teachings in philosophy and theology, as a defender of Faith. He also wrote many hymns, homilies, poems and Biblical commentaries.
My ability to learn runs at lightening speed . . . I absorb knowledge like a sponge . . . I co-Create Light with God's Divine Hand.
Father, through your Divine Grace, St. Ambrose became a great teacher and example of learning, so much that he glowed like a candle. Through the example of his Faith in you, I ask you to direct me to my greatness that reflects in your Divine Plan for me.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious, Pure and Holy name I pray. - Amen
