    Pope St. Gregory the Great, Doctor of the Church, and patron saint of teachers. I pray for all teachers. Thank you for accepting me into this noble profession. I humbly thank you for the wonderful success that God has granted my students in the exams each year. As I begin a new academic year I pray to God for patience, ingenuity and creativity in all that I do in the classroom and outside. May I guide all who are in my care and raise good, kind and caring individuals, who are outstanding in character and diligence. Bless my work each day. I dedicate the coming year to you. Pray for me. Amen.

    I love this site, and particlarly this Saint. Gregory the Great as said is the Patron Saint of Teachers and also of music. I want to be a musician or music teacher, and am planning on either choosing him or St. Anthony of Padua for my saint in confirmation.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Marsadee Flowers

    P.S. Thank you for all the you have done for me.

    The article is brief yet rich in order to know the life and background of St. Gregory the Great!
    By the way, St. Gregory the Great is the patron saint of our batch inside the seminary. We call ourselves "The Defenders" since St. Gregory the Great defended also the Church from the errors of his time :D

    A great pope and a great man! Please pray for me so that at least a shadow of your greatness falls upon me in discerning and obeying the will of God.

    Dear Saint Gregory The Great, please pray for the soul of our dear brother brother Terry whose birthday is today, your feast day. That he may soon join you and the community of Saints in the glory of God in Heaven

    I agree with the observations of many of your readers. The article is awesome and could be longer. But, no, it wouldn't have to be a book.

    Gregory is awesome. Entry could be larger, but then it would be a book.

    saint gregory the great represents the catholicity of catholicism for universality.

    catholicity in catholicism projected in Gregory the great is a symbolic article of candid faith in spirituality.
