Buona festa di Sant'Ambrogio! 🎉 🥳
Pius XII's Sacra Virginitas §42: "Ambrose fittingly writes: [semper spectavit ad gratiam sacerdotum, jacere semina integritatis et virginitatis studia provocare.] 'To sow the seeds of perfect purity and to arouse a desire for virginity has always belonged to the function of the priesthood.' [S. Ambros., De virginitate, c. 5, n. 26; PL XVI, 286.]"
