Aurelius Ambrosius, better known in English as Ambrose (c. between 337 and 340 – 4 April 397), was a bishop of Milan who became one of the most influential ecclesiastical figures of the fourth century. He is counted as one of the four original doctors of the Church.
From today’s newspaper:
A large bronze statue of a Catholic saint was stolen from a Salt Lake City church, the church’s priest and parishioners say. The 8-foot statue of St. Ambrose was taken during the weekend from its pedestal in front of St. Ambrose Catholic Church.
I’m sure it will help the Catholics to know that while the statue was stolen last weekend, the bishop’s religious identity was stolen 17 years ago. And even if the statue is returned, he will still be standing in the queue for the Celestial kingdom.
(Update. The statue has been recovered, slightly damaged.)
