Pope Saint Gregory the Great (first Feast of Title and Dedication)

A life of paradoxes: Born to riches, drawn to poverty in a city struggling to survive. Prevented from going to the back of beyond; forced to sit on a throne; choosing to be the servant of the servants of God. Who was Gregory the Great? How did he become our Patron? What special charisms did he possess…and what should we do, if we wish to follow his example?

This homily was preached by Fr. Jürgen Liias on September 8, 2013.
