St. Ambrose, to bishops

"Drink, then, from Christ, so that your voice may also be heard. Store up in your mind the water that is Christ, the water that praises the Lord. Store up water from many sources, the water that rains down from the clouds of prophecy.

"Whoever gathers water from the mountains and leads it to himself or draws it from springs, is himself a source of dew like the clouds. Fill your soul, then, with this water, so that your land may not be dry, but watered by your own springs. "

I agree. This is such a beautiful quote, Karen! (I have much to learn about St. Ambrose.)

So many fathers of the Church, so little time, Margaret! :-) I know the feeling.
