Advent Antiphons: December 7th

In the midst of the Church he opened his mouth, and the Lord filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding and clothed him in a robe of glory.    Cf.  Sirach 15:5

Today we celebrate the obligatory memorial of the great Saint Ambrose of Milan.  Some are gifted with music.  Some can fix anything that is broken.  Some have green thumbs.  Some are managers.   And in the virtuous living of daily life where gifts are put to use, God clothes us in robes of holiness and glory, a glory that reflects the glory of the One who gives the gifts.

Saint Ambrose was gifted with teaching and preaching.  How glorious is the Lord who raises up those who can speak so clearly for Him, so that others, who hear, may too be clothed with wisdom and understanding.
