Ambrose of Milan (December 7)

Lord, teach me to seek you, and reveal yourself to me when I seek you. For I cannot seek you unless you first teach me, nor find you unless you first reveal yourself to me. 

Ambrose is often depicted baptizing.  What a wonderful picture of a bishop, especially one who was called before he was baptized!  Here is a nice gallery of other Ambrose portraits and icons.

St. Ambrose Day is overshadowed by remembrances of St. Nicholas and  the attack on Pearl Harbor, but we managed to color this page and sing Savior of the Nations, Come (LSB 332), written by Ambrose.

Here is a sweet essay on Ambrose and Justification.

Finally, Bach's version of "Savior of the Nations, Come."
