St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan
Lord, you made St. Ambrose an outstanding teacher of the Catholic Faith, and gave him the courage of an apostle. Raise up in your Church more leaders after your own heart, to guide us with courage and wisdom. (Catholic)
O God, who gave your servant Ambrose grace eloquently to proclaim your righteousness in the great congregation, and fearlessly to bear reproach for the honor of your Name: Mercifully grant to all bishops and pastors such excellence in preaching and faithfulness in ministering your Word, that your people may be partakers with them of the glory that shall be revealed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. (Anglican)
Troparion: O Ambrose, wonderworker and champion of the Church,/ Godbearing Hierarch:/ thou didst work miracles by thy faith and love for God;/ therefore we the earthborn glorify thee and cry out:/ Glory to Him Who has glorified thee; glory to Him Who has crowned thee;/ glory to Him Who through thee works healings for all.
Kontakion: Thou didst shine with divine doctrine/ and blacken the error of Arius;/ working miracles in the power of the Spirit/ thou didst heal various passions./ O Ambrose, shepherd and teacher, pray to Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
