Saint Ambrose of Ferentino

Memorial

Profile

Fourth-century cavalry centurian in the imperial Roman army. Tortured and executed for his faith in the persecutions of Diocletian.

There is a long tradition of the people of Ferentino caring for the relics of Ambrose, and of Ambrose protecting Ferentino. Legend says that prayers for his intervention once resulted in a group of snails turning into soldiers who fought against Saracen invaders.
