Solemnity of Epiphany: Basilica of St. Ambrose...

Feast of the Ephiphany in the Basilica of St. Ambrose in Milan. This basilica is the university chapel of Milan's giant Catholic University of the Sacred Heart.
Mass was sung according to the reformed Ambrosian rite missal, in Latin. The celebrant was the Abbot in residence. Two canons were present. Visible in the tomb is St. Ambrose, vested in white while on either side of him are the bodies of Sts. Gervasio and Protasio.
Grazie, Riccardo! Lei ha una bella voce e si canta abastanza bene!

Buongiorno a tutti!
Sono uno studente dell'università Cattolica... I'm a student and I study in the Catholic University.
Ti assicuro che la Basilica non è la cappella dell'università.
La Basilica fu fatta costruire da S. Ambrogio. L'università ha una sua cappella in cui si celebra anche, mensilmente, in rito straordinario.

Quite interesting to see - but where oh where is St Ambrose - ?!
The only possible photo is the top one but I don't see any Saint vested in white clearly - it would be extremely valuable to view his Relics.

St Ambrose, pray for us!
