SAINT AMBROSE
Italian religious leader, bishop of Milan
(340 - 397)

If you are at Rome live in the Roman style; if you are elsewhere live as they live elsewhere.
  [Lat., Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more;
    Si fueris alibi, vivito sicut ibi.]
      - a version of the advice given to St. Augustine, quoted by Jeremy Taylor "Ductor Dubitantium", I, 1, 5
        [Rome]

It is not the ambassador, it is not the messenger, but the Lord Himself that saveth His people. The Lord remaineth alone, for no man can be partner with God in forgiving sins; this office belongs solely to Christ, who taketh away the sins of the world.
      - [Absolution]

Neither angel, nor archangel, not yet even the Lord Himself (who alone can say "I am with you"), can, when we have sinned, release us, unless we bring repentance with us.
      - [Absolution]

Prayer is the wing wherewith the soul flies to heaven, and meditation the eye wherewith we see God.
      - [Prayer]

Shepherd of tender youth,
  Guiding in love and truth,
    Through devious ways;
      Christ, our triumphant King,
        We come Thy name to sing,
          And here our children bring,
            To shout Thy praise.
      - [Children's Day]

True repentance is to cease from sin.
      - [Repentance]

When I am at Rome I fast as the Romans do; when I am at Milan I do not fast. So likewise you, whatever church you come to, observe the custom of the place, if you would neither give offence to others, nor take offence from them.
      - a version of the advice given to St. Augustine
        [Rome]

When I am at Rome, I fast on a Saturday: when I am at Milan I do not. Do the same. Follow the custom of the church where you are.
      - St. Augustine gives this as the advice of St. Ambrose
        [Rome]

When you are at Rome, live as Romans live.
      - [Proverbs]
