"Omnis enim res quæ dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur quomodo habenda est." ("For a possession which is not diminished by being shared with others, if it is possessed and not shared, is not yet possessed as it ought to be possessed.") —St. Augustine, De doctrina Christiana lib. 1 cap. 1

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.]"
