What's so great about St. Gregory?

 

Happy feast day, St. Gregory the Great! Pope Gregory I (540 – 604) was the head of the Catholic Church from 590 to 604. Born in Rome, he entered a monastery but was later called to serve the Pope. He became Pope eventually and made great improvements to liturgy and church music, such as the ‘Gregorian Chant’. He sent missionaries all over Europe and brought different peoples together under the Church. He cared greatly for the poor and his writings shaped the Church of today. For all these, he is given the title ‘the Great’. His feast day is on 3 September.
