It is amazing how some people's life suddenly take a swift turn and they become a hero in a particular area of life. St. Paul is a model example of this phenomenon; from a fierce persecutor of the Way to a zealous Apostle but there are many other examples.How often do we see people whose life seem uncharted and confused become a model version in multiple areas of life. This is what God can accomplish in an unpretentious soul.St. Ambrose we celebrate today was a non-Christian governor noted for his eloquence, rhetoric skills and charity. At the time of choosing a new Bishop in his province, he was present to preserve order during the election due to some controversies. Surprisingly, the people chose him by public acclamation: “Ambrose, Bishop! Ambrose, Bishop!” Inspite of his utmost resistance, he was baptised and consecrated a Bishop within eight days. As a Bishop, he was upbeat in every duty of a pastor, full of sympathy, charity and was remarkable for his eloquence.It was especially his eloquence that attracted Augustine to the Church, whence Augustine came to appreciate the content of his preaching and became converted and baptised by him.Through the intercession of St. Ambrose, may God find us worthy instruments of divine purposes.Credit: Catholic Diocese of Ekwulobia - CADEK ...
