Happy feast day of one of the greats - St. Ambrose (the Honey-Togue Doctor - the word for honey in Latin is ambrosia)! Chosen to serve as Bishop of Milan, Italy while still an unbaptized catechumen, St. Ambrose was devoted to theology and was a respected preacher (his sermons described as sweet as flowing honey). While Bishop, Ambrose baptized St. Augustine and St. Monica, Augustine's mother, loved Ambrose as an angel of God who uprooted her son from his former ways and led him to his convictions of Christ. - Ambrose introduced the West to Lectio Divina, a prayerful listening to the Word of God and is one of four great Latin Doctors of the Church. - St. Ambrose, patron saint of bees, candlemakers, and Italy, pray for us. __ #sotd #SaintOfTheDay #stambrose #saintambrose #corjesuministries #corjesulv #cjm #lasvegas
Saint Nicholas, the real Santa Clause, was born in the third century in what is now Turkey. St. Nicholas spent his life assisting those who were poor, suffering and sick. It wasn't long before he became known for his generosity and for his love of children. He became Bishop of Myra while still a young man and died on December 6th AD 343. - The story of Saint Nicholas came to America in distorted fashion. The Dutch Protestants carried a popularized version of the saint's life to New Amsterdam, portraying Nicholas as nothing more than a Nordic magician and wonder-worker. Our present-day conception of Santa Claus has grown from this version. Catholics should think of Nicholas as a saint, a confessor of the faith and the bishop of Myra — not merely as a jolly man from the North Pole who brings happiness to small children. // Lives of the Saints for every day of the Year, Volume III © 1959 __ #SaintOfTheDay #stnicholas #saintnicholasday #saintnicholasday🎅 #corjesuministries #corjesulv #cjm #CatholicCommunity #catholic #vegas
