Thirty-fifth day of Lent

Doctor Ambrose on the Mysteries (chapters 1-4)

Ambrose of Milan was an influential Christian writer who, like others of his era, faced an uphill battle against the Arians.  He once advised Augustine of Hippo to follow the liturgical norms of whatever locale where he happened to find himself (like the Sabbath, liturgy was made for man, not man for the liturgy):  "When in Rome, do as the Romans do."
