Today on our church calendar St. Ambrose of Milan is commemorated. You can read more about him by clicking here.
I've had a mosaic picture of him as my blog's "About Me" picture for quite some time now. Don't get me wrong. In no way am I comparing myself to Ambrose. But I chose this picture for three reasons...
1) Ambrose died on April 4, which is my birthday.
2) He has a short beard. I have a short beard.
3) I liked the picture.
So now you know.
