Saint Gregory the Great, Bishop of Rome and Doctor

Saint Gregory the Great inspired by a dove

Saint Gregory the Great inspired by a dove. By the Master of the Registrum Gregorii (a collection of the letters of Gregory the Great). From Wikipedia.

Almighty and everlasting God, who gavest thy servant Saint Gregory a great apostleship in the Church, and among manifold cares an earnest longing to convert the English people: Renew in us thy grace, that we also, forsaking the world’s honour, may serve thee as thou wilt appoint, and labour that thy praises may be sung in all lands; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst call Saint Gregory to the office of a bishop, that he might rule in thy Church with pastoral care: Grant that after his example we may burn with a love of souls; and labour that the praises of Jesus may be sung in heathen lands; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Amen.
