Ambrose

"In Milan I found your devoted servant the bishop Ambrose. ..”

“At that time his gifted tongue never tired of dispensing the richness of your corn, the joy of your oil, and the sober intoxication of your wine. Unknown to me, it was you who led me to him, so that I might knowingly be led by him to you.”

"I was all ears to seize upon his eloquence, I also began to sense the truth of what he said, though only gradually."

So then let the disciples acknowledge the verity of His body, which the world has acknowledged at their preaching.

- St. Augustine of Hippo. Homilies on the Gospels, Sermon LXVI.

· “Heaven is not a pipe dream, or a cruel mirage, but an amazing reality earned for us by Christ’s death, and proved by Christ’s resurrection.” Has this changed your view of heaven?

· “For God has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31) What’s your reaction to this?

· Do you believe the resurrection is possible?
