Saint Ambrose, an early “Father” and Doctor of the Church, was an educated lawyer and a Roman governor of Milan, with wealth and prestige. In 374 he was elected Bishop by popular demand, even though he was just a catechumen. From that point on he gave his wealth to the poor and for ransom. He learned theology and scripture from St. Simplican. At one point, he even excommunicated Emperor Theodosius. He fought the Arian heresy and pursued sanctity throughout his life.  St. Augustine’s conversion is attributed to St. Ambrose’s reasoning and logic.
