Ambrose Quotes

The Lord Jesus said, To those who are in bonds, Come out, and to those who are in prison, Go forth (Isa. 49:9); so your sins are forgiven. All, then, are forgiven, nor is there any one whom He has not loosed. For thus it is written, that He has forgiven all transgressions, doing away with the handwriting of the ordinance that was against us (Col. 2:13-14). Why, then, do we hold the bonds of others, while we enjoy our own remission? He, who forgave all, required of all that what every one remembers to have been forgiven to himself, he also should forgive others.

The likeness of Your Church, O Lord, is that woman who went behind and touched the hem of Your garment, saying within herself: 'If I do but touch His garment I shall be whole' (Mt. 9:21). So the Church confesses her wounds, but desires to be healed.

These three witnesses are one, as John said: 'The water, the blood, and the Spirit' (I Jn. 5:8). One in the mystery, not in nature. The water, then, is a witness of burial, the blood is a witness of death, the Spirit is a witness of life. If, then, there be any grace in the water, it is not from the nature of water, but from the presence of the Holy Spirit.

The Psalms are the voices of the church.

— Ambrose

May each one of us glorify the Lord with the soul of Mary and rejoice in God with the spirit of Mary

— Ambrose

The Lord Jesus himself proclaims, 'This is My Body.' Before the blessing of the heavenly words something of another character is spoken of; after consecration it is designated 'body'. He himself speaks of his blood. Before the consecration it is spoken of as something else; after the consecration it is spoken of as 'blood'. And you say, 'Amen', that is, 'It is true.' What the mouth speaks, let the mind within confess; what the tongue utters, let the heart feel.

— Ambrose

Love is like a shadow, one can only catch it by falling into it.

— Ambrose

As a servant desireth the approval of his master, and a son the approval of his father, so should we desire the approval of God and our own conscience.

— Ambrose

When you are at Rome, live as Romans live.
