  • Sweet Words

    O splendor of God’s glory bright
    O living spring of light from light:
    come, very Sun of truth and love;
    come with your radiance from above.
    Teach us to love with all our might;
    drive envy out, remove all spite;
    turn to the good each troubling care,
    and give us grace your name to bear
    -St. Ambrose, 4th century

    Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, lived during the years of 340-397. He was an archbishop in the early church, and championed the way of faith. He was the person who baptized Augustine, an adult convert to the faith, who became one of the most influential theologians of all time.
