"To publish Catholic journals and place them in the hands of honest men is not enough. It is necessary to spread them as far as possible that they may be read by all, and especially by those whom Christian charity demands we should tear away from the poisonous sources of evil literature." –Pope St. Pius X

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.]"
