Pope Saint Gregory the Great Comments

St. Gregory, born at Rome about the year 540, was the son of Gordianus, a wealthy senator, who later renounced the world and became one of the seven deacons of Rome. After he had acquired the usual thorough education, Emperor Justin the Younger appointed him, in 574, Chief Magistrate of Rome, though he was only thirty-four years of age.

    Pope St. Gregory, ever since my childhood I had heard a lot about your Holiness; especially through Gregorian calender and Gregorian Holy Mass for the departed souls. Please remember me in your prayers.

    Dear St. Gregory, once again I thank you for the marvelous improvements that my students have shown in their communication skills, especially in expressing themselves in writing. I know that this has happened through your wonderful intercession and petition to our Father in Heaven. I dedicate this academic year to you: grant me ingenuity, creativity and ideas that my lessons may be delivered in a thought-provoking manner. I ask that my students respond to me in happy and eager tones, that learning takes place. May my lessons be dynamic and interactive. That each and everyone of my students develops their potential. I thank you for the continued good results in the last academic year. I offer the coming year to God, and I seek your prayers. Give success to the work of our hands. May I never tire, may my enthusiasm never wane. Perk me up each day. Give me wonderful rest as I lay my head on the pillow. Amen.

    Dear Pope Gregory the Great,

    Today is Tuesday, 3 September 2013 and it is your Feast Day. I want to thank you for saving my father's life as he lay on the operating table and clinging to his life as the senior surgeons performed a complex and highly dangerous surgery on his dying heart and lungs. His chances of survival were slim and we went on our knees and prayed to you that you will intercede the Risen Lord to save dad from dying on the operating table.

    The senior surgeon told us that he was very surprised that the surgery went as well as it did. Dad is now recovering from his 10 hour triple bypass and lung surgery and I can't thank you enough for petitioning the Kingdom of Heaven on your Feast Day to save my fathers life. We have our dear dad with us some more years to enjoy life together and to love one another more than ever before.

    I thought St. Gregory to be the Patron Saint of Musician but unfortunately, I found him in this website as the Patron Saint of Teachers. Isn't he the one who started the Gregorian chant? I think he is the patron saint of musicians, not teachers...

    The "cartoon" about Gregory, "Saints Fun Facts" says he became a priest at the age of 35. I thought Gregory was a deacon when he was elected Pope and was ordained a priest and bishop as a result of that election.

    I like him because he showed himself a true pastor in his administration, his care for the poor and needy, and in spreading and strengthening the faith of the people. He wrote many works on faith and morals. God has blessed him the spirit of wisdom with which he ruled the church as pope. What I learn as a priest is to be an effective administrator imbued with the pastoral care of the people. Justice imbued with mercy and compassion.St.Gregory guide me on the way to reach Christ Lord whom you loved and served with love and wisdom.
