Almighty God, you made Saint Ambrose a teacher of the Catholic faith and a pattern of apostolic fortitude. Raise up in your church today men and women after your own heart to lead your people with courage, wisdom and strength. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
St. Ambrose, pray for us.
