Ambrose on Revelation and Mystery

From Augustine's mentor, Ambrose of Milan:


“The things which God wishes to be hidden are not to be examined; and the things which He has made manifest are not to be rejected, lest we as ingrates be improperly curious toward the former and damnably ungrateful for the latter.” 
De Vocatione Gentium, Bk. 17
