In his autobiography Confessions, Augustine (+ 430) gratefully acknowledges the importance of Ambrose (+ 397) in his journey to faith.
So I came to Milan and to Ambrose its Bishop…. He was a devout worshiper of You, Lord, and at the same time his energetic preaching provided Your people with the choicest wheat and the joy of oil and the sober intoxication of wine. Unknowingly, I was led by You to him, so that through him I might be led, knowingly, to You.
- Who has God graciously inspired to help you in your journey to faith?
- Who might God want you to help bring to deeper faith, hope and love?
