Ambrose (or Ambrois), St

Ambrose (Or Ambrois), St.

was bishop of CAHORS in 725; but, finding that the people paid no heed to his doctrine or example, left his see and hid himself in a cave near the city, where he remained three years in prayer and fasting. Being discovered, he went to Rome, and thence to a hermitage on the Arnon, in Berry, where he died, in 770. His festival is observed Oct. 16, the day of his, death.
