Gregory the Great

As the Church celebrates the holiness of Pope Saint Gregory the Great, we recall his longing to return monastic life all during his papacy. Devoted to the solitude and silence of his Benedictine monastery on the Caelian Hill in Rome, he nonetheless responded generously and readily when appointed to the papacy. As monks we want to follow the Lord with open hearts, ready for all that he asks of us day by day.
Inspired by this morning's meditation by Father Nickolas of Collegeville.
